The Asia Trail Girls Podcast - Episode #14
with Mira Rai & Keilem Ng
In today's 14th episode we chat to the ever so beautiful and endearing Mira Rai and multi talented Keilem Ng about their non profit organization: Exchange and Empower.
You all know Mira Rai and her famous transformational story from living in a remote village in Nepal and having to runaway to be a child soldier to support her family to now being a professional Salomon trail athlete. Mira got spotted in a 50k trail race and since then has been supported and helped throughout her running career, which has encouraged her to give help to other female Nepalese girls in impoverished communities, the same way she was supported.
She teamed up with good friend Keilem Ng to start Exchange and Empower, which helps local Nepalese females with run training, nutrition help, coaching and education. Keilem is a world of knowledge and seems to do everything; she is an environmental activist, feminist and started Hong Kong female trail runners which has since merged with us, ATG.
We chat about Mira's life, why she runs and all about their amazing projects. They also both give their advice on our current ATG Everesting challenge for those who are joining.
We currently have a virtual challenge, ATG Everesting running now for the month which supports E & E. If you would like to join, click here...
