Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredible help for the last three years.
I could never have done it alone. I am grateful for your love and support. ❤


My goal for 2018 is to keep running, raising money and to build more schools. I would love to win a race too, so I could fulfill my niece and nephew’s wish. 🙂 Alex and Victor are my little supporters that I LOVE SO MUCH. ❤

Shreck FAMILYMe, Victor and Alex – The Shrek family! ❤

Next year I will travel to Nicaragua and Burkina Faso to build two more schools. I am so happy to share that I will also go back to Senegal to visit Mariam. I met Mariam in November this year, in Senegal when our team helped build another school.
I fell in love with her and my heart skips beats every time I think of her. ❤

Mariam Asleep BLOGEvery night, Mariam would fall asleep in my arms under the dark velvety sky.
I miss her so much. ❤

To raise more money for kids and schools, here are the races I will run next year.
I will run another 10 marathons – my “10 for 10” campaign has been so successful this year that I decided to do it all over again. If you’d like to contribute and support me, please consider donating $1, $10, $100 or whatever you can for each marathon I run. Any dollar counts and can make a big difference in so many children’s lives for generations to come. Here are the marathons I’ll run next year; some will be very challenging.
