#5: Racing for climate action with Clare Gallagher
From Hans Marcelino
For Clare Gallagher, the urgent cry of “all hands on deck” to combat climate change brings her to her feet. The endurance athlete uses her large online following of running enthusiasts, among others, to educate and mobilize for climate action. Sponsored by outdoor-clothing company Patagonia, Clare is a Global Sports Activist for the company and an influential voice on climate action. She uses her blog and social media to spread information, link to petitions, publicize events, and urge legislators in her homestate of Colorado and nationwide to act now for the sake of the planet and humanity.
