Elite endurance athlete LISA SMITH-BATCHEN is running for change. She ran 2,500 miles across America in 62 days, becoming the only person to pursue this journey she called ‘Running HOPE through America.’ Lisa ran across the Sahara desert, becoming the first American woman to win the 150-mile Marathon des Sables. She has run through Death Valley more times than any woman, twice winning the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon. She is the first woman to complete the 584-mile Badwater Quad on a project she called ‘Badwater 4 Goodwater.’

But Lisa’s running is deeper than her wins and records. She runs to change the world, and has raised over $8 million for charity in the process. Over these thousands of miles on foot she has uncovered secrets you can only learn when you fully commit to the process of doing good.

She is going to share those secrets, and what she has planned for her 60th year on earth, with our community of change-makers on September 29. We want you to be there. This conversation will not only inspire, it will also delight, motivate and take your charitable enterprise to the next level. 

Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear this incomparable world-changing legend tell her story.
