The motivation to better the world, paired with a passion for running, is about to take Brandy Hagel on an amazing adventure.

She is part of Team Tassy, a fundraising group that has organized an eight-day 371-kilometre ultra-marathon across the entire country to raise money for the creation of sustainable jobs for families in Haiti.
