“I decided to run the Yellowstone Half partly as a family vacation, partly as a way to create new space for my understanding of what was possible for fundraising. On the first point, my family enjoyed the 5K Fun Run, and my daughter even placed for her age group! This really included the family in my pursuit and gave them a memorable experience (and some confidence!). On the second point, running in a brand new space that is so vast and storied helped me raise funds because so many people told me that Yellowstone was their favorite national park (and it was the first!). For me personally, I was humbled by the response which motivated me to run through anything that came my way on the trail.” – Meredith Davis, 24 Charity Bib at Yellowstone
