A week or so ago, we alerted NCR readers that one of our bloggers, Tom Gallagher, would be racing across the Sahara Desert in Egypt on a 150-mile race. It's not his first such race; he has competed in the Atacama Desert in Chile and the Gobi Desert in China.
For Gallagher, these events combine, he says, “athletics, spirituality and terrific people in a compelling location -- the desert.”
Gallagher uses his races as fundraisers and raised more than $30,000 for Malta House for women and children in Norwalk, Conn., through the first two races. His goal is to raise $15,000 in the Sahara. You can find out more at www.maltahouse.org.
Gallagher is in the desert and -- believe it or not -- he's blogging.
Here are his first to entries. We'll keep you posted.
