This blog is not used for promoting the endeavors of others, but in this case, I must make an exception. Katharine and David Lowrie are running the length of South America in a quest to raise funds and environmental awareness for the continent’s threatened habitats. You can read their story soon in my article for Earth Island Journal titled, A Race To Save A Continent. http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/a_race_to_save_a_continent/
In addition to being a runner, Katharine Lowrie is a painter and is raffling two of her paintings. Ticket sales will help support their cause.
