A child of immigrants, Noe Alvarex grew up working-class in Washington state. Determined to get out of his small hometown and avoid the factory jobs of his contemporaries, Alvarez made it his mission to go to college. However, upon arriving at university he found himself isolated and unmoored, lacking motivation and seeking a greater sense of purpose. Alvarez found that purpose when he discovered the Peace and Dignity Journeys, who organized marathons for native people. Without hesitation, Alvarez dropped out of college and embarked on a 4-month odyssey from Canada to Guatemala, running over thousands of miles of unforgiving terrain and pushing himself physically and mentally in ways he never imagined possible. —Jade
