Stephanie Case (Canadian) is an avid ultra runner and active human rights lawyer. For most of 2014, Stephanie lived in a tent in South Sudan, helping to assist tens of thousands of South Sudanese affected by conflict. She has recently taken up a post with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Gaza. Despite the challenging environments in which she lives and works, Stephanie has won and placed in a number of international running events, ranging from 250 km multi-day desert races to 100-mile non-stop mountain races from the Swedish Arctic to the Gobi desert.
If that's not enough, in her part time, beside running, she has started a charity called Free to Run which is a nonprofit organization that uses running, physical fitness and outdoor adventure as a means of empowering and educating females in conflict-affected communities to overcome the harmful effects of gender, religious and ethnic discrimination. Please donate NOW to this worthy charity.
