See them run

Wednesday night when I should have been finishing my workshop for the next day, I went to an event put on by Room to Read (see side bar). It was the screening of a documentary film, See Them Run, about three young Victorians who spent this summer running across Africa from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. We met Erin, Patrick and Reuben, the three people who ran a marathon each day for 100 days to raise money and awareness. At the screening they presented Room to Read, an organization that builds schools, libraries, publishes books in English and the home country's language all over the world, a cheque for 40 000 dollars. Feel inspired?
