Introduced by: Bob Holert

Wendi Fischer will present her experience running across the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania in October of 2020. The story begins earlier with a lofty goal, a change of heart, lots of work, and a big commitment. Wendi will share the story of how she joined a team of female endurance runners to raise money to support programs that empower young women in Tanzania. While mornings were dedicated to running, the afternoons were filled with photographic game drives and sundowners (cocktails).  The presentation will share a great story and many beautiful photos.
