Running for the Saharawi people

On February 23rd I will complete running a Marathon on all seven continents by participating in the 2016 Sahara Marathon. My previous six Marathons were driven by personal motives but this seventh and final Marathon is particularly special as it's aimed at promoting and developing humanitarian programs for the Saharawi people.

Close to Tindouf, within the Algerian territory, at a very short distance from Western Sahara and Mauritania, there is a border zone which has been home to 200,000 sharawi refugees for more than 35 years. You can read more about their situation here, however this race is to prevent the Saharawi people from being forgotten.

    Paul, It is so cool that you are doing this. I wanted to run Marathons on all 7 continents myself, but had to abandon that goal. I used to chair the board of USA for UNHCR. This is a fantastic cause! Good luck!!! Ellen Kratzer, Fiduciary Trust, NYC
