Crossing Iowa on Foot and Raising Charitable Funds
EXIT Realty North Star Agent Mandi Pralle & Her Husband Kris Rachut
Mandi Pralle, an agent with EXIT Realty North Star, is making a run across the state of Iowa with her husband, Kris Rachut. Beginning in Fairview, SD, on Monday, June 6, 2014, Pralle and Rachut plan to take 10 days to cover 300 miles.
The married couple are natives of northern Iowa and are making the run as a fundraiser for Save the Children. "We will be running without a support crew, just what we have on our backs," said Rachut.
They plan to follow Highway 18 for the most part, ending up in Marquette. Overnight towns along their route include Sheldon, Spencer, Emmetsburg, Algona, Garner, Mason City, Charles City, New Hampton and Clermont.
Veterans of several ultra-marathons, the couple most recently participated in a 100k run in Houston in January. Weekends for the two have consisted of back-to-back long training runs. For this run, Pralle and Rachut chose Save the Children to support and five their run a larger purpose. Their goal is to raise $2,000.
"Save the Children gives children in the United States and around the world what every child deserves: a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and proptection from harm," said Pralle. "After all, the best investment we can make is in children."
The couple moved to Des Moines in January. Pralle recently joined EXIT Realty North Star, using her experience in real estate investing to provide informed and tailored service to her clients.
EXIT Realty North Star is proud to have people like Mandi, who have a heart of service, working from their office. Business without people serving other people is no business worth doing.
