"I want to bridge my love for running and adventure in nature with my passion for environmental conservation and activism. I believe POW is the perfect organization for me to get involved with to share the impacts of climate change on the sport of running and our collective privileges to recreate outdoors. I want to share with the people the power of their voices in holding government officials and representatives accountable for protecting us and our environment."
