Love for Gambia

In this episode we run along with Erin Poirer as she crosses the country of Gambia in West Africa.

Born on PEI, Erin usually works as a nurse at a high school in Halifax.

But this past summer she combined her love of running with her passion for Africa...she ran more than 400 kilometres and raised more than $34,000 for a charity that does development work in the Gambia.

She took a tape recorder along to record her impressions, and the stories of the people she met.
