Spent the afternoon collecting miles and smiles! Using my blog @emmithingispossible I'm working to connect people through random acts of kindness and encourage people to run with purpose, and Carolina is the perfect place to participate in both! #randomactsofkindness #physicalvigor #runforemmi Photo by Jessie Keener '19 #takeovertuesday

I only have one class on Tuesdays, so I spend my mornings volunteering in 6th grade PE ! Today we played Gaga ball, a knee-down version of dodgeball in a small hexagonal barrier! I would have snapped a pic, but the game was too intense! Photo by Jessie Keener '19 #takeovertuesday
