Sunday morning we ran a 5k race to raise money for ACS Operation Smile in hopes that they can start a chapter here in La Paz, Bolivia. Currently there is only one in Santa Cruz, so patients have to travel the 18 hour bus ride to seek medical treatment. Martina Muñoz, a high school student here, helped to organize the race and it was her desire to start a chapter in La Paz. This girl is incredible and has a deep desire to change the world… and is already hard at work doing it! The race was a ‘color run’ – bags of colored powder were thrown at us during the race, which made it super fun and crazy!
Thanks everyone who worked so hard to make this possible and also to all the runners and walkers that came out to support such a great cause! Below are a few of my favorite photos from the day – but you can click this link to view ALL the photos – feel free to share on facebook!
