She was recently featured on Oprah’s Lifeclass, an Outside magazine 127 Defining Moments finalist and has been written about in Redbook and American Hiker magazine.

An honest and inspirational book, Kara wrote as if she were my best friend, describing her struggles, goals and achievements. Her passion - and compassion - for Africa and the Global Alliance for Children Orphaned by HIV/AIDS was very motivational. Likewise her message that it is never too late to get fit. I enjoyed being with Kara every step of the way on Kilimanjaro - to the top of Africa.
