This is a special episode with a particularly urgent message. We have an amazing guest to tell us about an incredibly significant event happening over the January 18-19 weekend. The Australia Relief Run is an event that is being organized to occur all over the world. Samantha Gash is an ultra runner and resident of Australia who set off a darn near viral event where runners can register for a virtual race to raise money for Red Cross to help victims of the Australian brush fires, which has had devastating death tolls, housing and habitat loss.
My daughter Morgan has been deeply concerned about the loss of wildlife including critically endangered species like the Koalas. She wants to become a zoologist and visit Australia in the near future. This past Sunday, my father-in-law (Patrick) casually brought to my attention a run being organized here in Denver called the Australia Relief Run. As I looked into it I found that Runners World had picked up the story. I also researched the person who started the event and learned it was Samantha Gash. Samantha is a limit-breaking ultra-runner, a leadership speaker, and she has dedicated herself to humanitarian causes and now helping her home country in perhaps it's worst natural disaster in a century or more.
So we published episode #213 on Saturday night, I learn about the Relief Run Sunday afternoon, I message Samantha that evening and we recorded Monday. I wanted to get this message out to our listeners, who are literally all over the world, and encourage you participate in this event this weekend.
I'm putting links to the Relief Run website, the Runner's World article and Samantha's website.
