Weds 3/30 @ 630pm at Beehive Books: Claire's Run Across Ethiopia

March is Women's History month and we invite you to hear living history from someone in our community. Claire Everhart will speak about her recent experience of running 250 miles in 11 days accross Ethiopia with a team of 9 others who raised $200,000 to build 3 schools. Claire is a recent OWU graduate and an intern at Global Village Collection.

"The hardest part of 'Run Across Ethiopia' was not actually the running. Yes, 250 miles in 11 days was not easy, but with running there is a clear goal and a clear way to achieve that goal; one foot in front of the other, again, and again ... and again. Yet poverty, its causes, and solutions are much more complicated. Witnessing the poverty in Ethiopia made the running seem easy"--Claire Everhart

Throughout the run, the team visited the villages where schools are now under construction. Once finished, the 3 schools will serve over 1200 students that before this, did not have access to an education. Go to to find out more about the impact of "Run Across Ethiopia".

Join Beehive Books in welcoming Claire and celebrating her effort!
