Why #IRunForJim

Freelance journalists -- especially those who venture into conflict zones as Jim did -- are a bit crazy and motivated by something outside the bounds of normal career goals. I believe Jim did and most of us still do what we do with the hope that telling the world's stories with a sense of compassion can lead to real, positive change.

Whether exposing corruption, environmental harm or communities caught in war's crossfire, good journalists accept low pay and high risk to serve something bigger than themselves. That was certainly true for Jim.

I'm a freelancer myself and Liz Weber, my running partner, has also worked as a freelance journalist. This organization has provided me with free hostile environment/first aid training in the past, and I believe in their mission. Liz and I would love if you'd join us in supporting their work as we run for Jim!
