I am sure you don't want to miss out on a chance to hear Ray Zahab speak at Burns Bog Gala http://www.burnsbog.org/gala/
If your not sure who Ray is read about him through the links below:
Ray, after years of smoking and poor diet, decided to start a journey toward a healthier lifestyle. Ray quit smoking and took up running. Ray kept on challenging himself and became an ultra-marathon runner. Ultra-marathoning took him around the world.
When his running brought him to the Sahara desert he started noticing how even a few droplets of water can be so much to someone who has none. Ray began to see the relationship between clean water and it's importance to all when witnessing first had a water crisis and malaria epidemic in Africa. This is when Ray decided to be the change he wanted to see and decided that his future running adventures would include raising awareness to causes he believed in.
That is why Ray is coming to speak at Burns Bog Gala Friday September 24 and is going to run around Burns Bog Sunday September 26 http://www.burnsbog.org/jog4thebog/index.htm he believes Burns Bog is important and needs to be protected.
