Mom's on a Mission Palmetto Complete

We did it! Our team was the first female ultra team to ever finish the Palmetto 200! (An ultra team is comprised of only 6 runners instead of a full team which is 12 runners).

We also won a prize for the best costume! We figured if we were going to run 200 miles for a good cause, it would help to draw attention to our team by dressing up, and it worked; we had so many people coming up to us asking us about what we were running for, and we were able to tell them about Amazima and all the work they are doing in Uganda.

Plus, we raised over $2,000 to go directly to Amazima!

A big thank you to all of the people who were supporting and encouraging us and to all of those who donated to Amazima in support of our efforts. I would also like to thank my family for tolerating all my time away to train :)
