On a recent Friday, during the sticky summer heatwave that suffocated Los Angeles for well over a month, Annee Deering was finishing up seven hours on her stationary bike trainer. Seven hours.

But even that hasn’t stopped Annee. Friends and supporters have been pitching in to help her realize her dream and carry a message that is much larger than her athletic competition. She’s using her media exposure to bring attention to the non-profit organization Girls On The Run, a group whose goals coincide with Annee’s mission of empowering women through athletics. Strengthening women is something close to Annee’s heart.
