A Little About Kimberly and Ryan

Meet Kimberly and Ryan

Hi! I am Kimberly Battle and a relative newbie to distance running. I have always been an athlete growing up and considered myself a "runner" - as in I would run about 2-3 miles 5-6x per week. I just never really pushed myself beyond a 5k or 10k. Once Covid hit and gyms shut down, I decided to set a goal and focus my efforts on running my first half marathon. I did that 2 weeks into quarantine last March and haven't looked back. I love running, and decided now was the time mentally and physically for me to achieve the bucket list item I wasn't always 100% confident I would achieve - a full marathon! I was introduced to the TFFT organization back in 2018 when we were invited as guests to attend the annual gala in Charlotte, NC. I immediately fell in love with the mission and felt drawn to the organization. Africa has always held a special place in my heart, my love for the animals, for the people, for the culture. So it felt like the perfect cause to support and run for. I could not be more proud and excited to be a member of the TFFT team and help raise funds for the mission of providing quality education to the vulnerable children of Tanzania!
