It might sound easy to say that we are celebrating 40 years of services, but thinking about what that really means is a different story. I have been working for this organization for the last 9 years, and I can only think about the good that NCFH has spread during all these years. I have been fortunate enough to be able to work directly with Promotores and meet farmworkers everywhere I go. What they do to improve the health of their communities with the support we provide makes me feel proud. It makes me think that the work we do is really meaningful.
But NCFH’s good has also reached me. I work as a health educator. Day in and day out I read about different health issues and one thing that has always stayed with me is how important exercise is for our health. In other words, my work has had a big influence on how I view exercise today. This year, I joined the Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay Run Adventure. Two hundred and fifty teams ran 178 miles around Lake Tahoe. This natural beuty is located between the States of Nevada and California. Each team had 12 runners and ours ran this wonderful loop of beauty and challenges in 31:49 minutes. It was a great adventure that I dedicate with my heart to NCFH in its 40th anniversary!
De mí parte y de parte de mi familia les deseamos felicidades y muchos años más de éxitos!
