Coach Lisa swims in Africa

Posted by coachlisa on December 28, 2007

Coach Lisa is back from her trip to Uganda, East Africa where she helped build a teacher home in an orphan village and cared for orphaned and abandoned children at the Watoto Bulrushes babies home.  She also visited rural libraries taking much needed children’s books to help with literacy and education.

During her time off humanitarian missions, she found a pool to swim laps. While doing running workouts in the streets and slum areas of Kampala, Uganda’s capital, she also found her own horde of orphan children.
