Would you run from Cincinnati to Cleveland?

That's 260 miles. And two Lake Erie College students - twins Rachel and Sandi Nypaver of Parma Heights, Ohio - are going to do it.

If you have visited campus recently, you've been introduced to Rachel and Sandi through our viewbook, which highlights the accomplishments of current Lake Erie College students. You'll find Sandi on the Student Activities page, where she discusses starting up the student organization, Students Making a Difference, with her twin sister. Rachel is featured on the Athletics page (both girls play basketball for Lake Erie College) and shares the benefits of participating in athletics - on and off the court.

Rachel and Sandi will be trekking across the state to raise money for the United Way, which strives to create a better life for everyone through education, income and health. Instead of "quick fixes", the United Way strives to make lasting changes in communities by addressing the underlying problems that prevent progress.

The "I Believe Run Across Ohio 2009" begins in Cincinnati on December 17 and ends in Cleveland on December 20. Get more information about this amazing journey and their student organization, Students Making a Difference, here.

Best of luck Rachel & Sandi!! You are an inspiration to us all make Lake Erie College so proud!
