Running Shoes and a Wool Habit: Endurance Athlete and a New Jersey Nun are Running 2,500 Miles of Hope Through America
Date:4/8/2010

for Running Hope Through America, she is planning to race-walk through most of the states in which she is participating.

Smith Batchen is the only American to ever win at the famous "Marathon des Sables,” a 150 mile race through the Sahara. She took the top prize for the women's division, and is still the only American to have ever earned a trophy of any kind in this race. She has won the Badwater Ultramarathon twice, and is one of the only women to ever have completed the "Badwater Double," also known as the "Death Valley 300" because of its location and distance. In 2010, she will be the first woman to complete 10 Badwater Ultramarathons.

Besides being an accomplished athlete, Smith Batchen is also the founder of the Dreamchaser Foundation. Established in 2008, the foundation encourages amateur and professional athletes alike to use their passion for sports for charitable ends. To date, Smith Batchen has raised more than $4.5 million for charity. She was personally invited to meet Pope John Paul II as thanks for the work she has done to support AIDS Orphans Rising.

All funds raised through Running Hope Through America will be distributed by the Dreamchaser Foundation to three organizations that uniquely assist orphans abroad and in the United States: AIDS Orphans Rising (India, Ethiopia), The Caring House Project (Haiti) and The Orphan Foundation of America (United States).

Runners and non-runners alike can join Smith Batchen on most of her runs and do not have to complete the run to participate. Those interested in donating to the cause, joining Smith Batchen in their state or just learning more, are encouraged to visit
