Running For My Life
Full Product Description
He was abducted. He was beaten. And he was nearly forced to become a boy solider in his war-torn homeland, Sudan. But he escaped in the night, ran three days, and was taken into a refugee camp in Kenya. He never owned a pair of shoes. He never owned a pen or paper and did schoolwork in the dust with his fingertips.
His boyhood was the daily struggle of an orphan, and each day he would run an eighteen-mile lap around the refugee camp just to play a game of soccer. In his wildest dreams, Lopez Lomong couldn’t even conceive that Nike would one day be his official sponsor, that he would graduate from college, and that he would represent his new home and bear the American flag in the Summer Olympics.
'Running for My Life' is Lopez Lomong’s harrowing story of loss, overcoming, triumph and redemption. It is the once-in-a-lifetime story of a Sudanese lost boy who became an American citizen and Olympic athlete. His life is a powerful picture of the fact that we can overcome, that what seems out of reach is within our grasp if we’d believe and if we’d only try.
A story of faith, and a story that captures the best of humanity, Running for My Life will arrest the hearts and inspire the hopes of readers everywhere.
