A couple of months ago I posted a contest on behalf of my organization Hope So Bright, for an athlete to represent my organization.
After going through many many entries, we finally decided on our winner to represent Hope So Bright in the brightest light- it was a tough decision as we had many great entries, but we felt that Rachel Cieslewicz, had some great key qualities in her essay that we felt would represent HSB as well as a great representation of American endurance runners amongst many international athletes. Congratulations Rachel and thank you for wanting to join and be part of this journey- http://www.carreradebaja.com/

Rachel’s statement when she was announced the Winner of the Marathon Challenge:

“I am incredibly excited to represent Hope So Bright and race Carrera De Baja. Thank you Linda Sanders for the opportunity to support your worthy cause of serving children and creating better lives for so many.”
