Mahalo Team Nalu 26:2!

Would you run and marathon or half marathon for something you believed in? A group of high schoolers and one adult from High Desert, California literally went 'the extra mile' (or 12 or 26 !) and ran either a half or full marathon to raise awareness and funds for STN. We are impressed, inspired, and humbled to have such amazing people investing their time and talent to supporting the cause of STN. (more…)
