Barry McDonald’s 315 mile run across Haiti gains more Media attention
Barry McDonald runs across the nation of Haiti
Imagine running twelve marathons in a row. Imagine running in the third world. Running for no prize, no award, no fame, no earthly reason to run so hard except one. A painfully simple reason. Running is the best way Barry McDonald - a 35 year-old Australian - can help the tens of thousands of women in Haiti in need of better quality healthcare. Help women who bear children on dirt floors, in fields, and in dingy dark rooms.
Barry is running, as a fundraiser, to build a maternity and education facility at Heartline Haiti’s compound. Heartline is a 501c3 organization with a 20 plus year record of accountability, adoptions, emergency aid and education. Please check out more about Heartline on the site to see some of the dramatic results of their decades of work.
Well now he has completed his 4th marathon in 4 days and has 8 more marathons to go. Media coverage of this incredible event is growing. Mitch Albom of the Detroit free press will interview Barry Tomorrow as he continues his Gauntlet. Australian radio 2ue has picked up the story (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fhwYXPixNpU) Many more to follow.
