My (Dimas Ramirez) daughter Blanca Ramirez. She’s 14 years old right now, but at age 11, she began to do long distance running. She knew she could do more than just run, so she decided to run a charity.
She ran for Operation Smile, Operation Smile is a non-profit organisation that helps children worldwide suffering from cleft lip or cleft palate at no charge.
My daughter believe that no child should be without a smile, so to help, even more, she took her running even further, she when on a journey on becoming the youngest female in the world to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in the name of Operation Smile, she raised money & awareness for this organization.
She completed her journey by age 12 on February 19, 2015. But she’s not done, she now continues to help inspire others by running, she also runs to honour our fallen men & women in the military by carrying a flag for them from start to finish.
One person, she inspired so much, is her little brother Jordan, he is 7 years old, & has run to this day – 105x 5k’s, 11x 10k’s, & 4x half marathons. He will be running all 7 continents too along with Blanca, starting in November 2017 in Australia.
They both plan to continue helping others, & maybe one day getting an Olympic medal.
Debriefing of this Story
People think we need money or fame to create change in other’s life. But that’s not true and Blanca Ramirez is a living example of that. What is important is the strong will to do something for others. if you have that and start taking action, everything else will fall in place with time to help you.
We all need to get inspired from 14-year-old Blanca Ramirez.
