I can finally share a secret with you. For the last four months I have been training for a marathon, not just any marathon though – the Marathon of Afghanistan. (see article here) I couldn’t have done it without the amazing coaching of Martin Parnell

I chose to run and to film this marathon because I wanted to support the courageous young Afghan women who are putting their lives on the line to be a voice for equality in their country. They are making history. This is one of the most important stories I have ever told and I need a community to help me get this film across the finish line. We would love to have you be part of our community. Check out this short film:

“The passport challenge is a great way to become more immersed in a different culture, and it gave us a lot more incentive to look for local events and meet people that we wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.” Brian Cleland
