How far would you push yourself to give back to those in need?

That question has no limits for hybrid athlete Ashley Horner, a local business owner, mother of three and Reebok Athlete. After taking on two extreme runs totaling over 500 miles Ashley is now set to take on two new adventures in the month of November. Her efforts will help provide a Christmas for Maison Fortune, an orphanage in Haiti and raise money for wounded Veterans.

Ashley is pushing her body to the limits by swimming 201 miles in the month of November to raise $5,000 for a Christmas fund to support the Maison Fortune Orphanage in Haiti.  Her swim is being completed in both the pool and the ocean. Despite her busy travel schedule she's still getting in miles  even when she's on the road.
