Katie Spotz pushed her mind and body to become the youngest person to row across the Atlantic Ocean for charity. That was a decade ago. And since then, she has continued to challenge herself with feats few have even attempted.

Now, with a revitalized faith in God, her next quest will come on land when she’ll run nonstop across the state of Maine to bring clean water to Tanzanian communities.
