This week, 44 runners and crew members gathered at the northern tip of Haiti and the 230-Mile Run Across Haiti began! Team Tassy and the dedicated runners have a goal of raising $200,000 to aid the families that they work with.
SoLo has sponsored the Tassy Team as well as an inspiring young lady named Brandy Hagel. Through her personal journey to raise funds supporting Haiti job creation, she will also become an Ultra Marathon Runner, a title few runners hold.
While this event is a massive personal undertaking for Brandy, she keeps her focus by remembering why she's doing it.
“I think about everyone I met in Haiti, and each of their smiling faces, every single day.”
