Women's Balega Grit & Grace Graceful Warrior
In life, light reflects light, and so do a few extraordinary people. People like Kim Stemple - Balega Impi Ambassador.
Kim Stemple is nothing short of a warrior. In 2012, while training for the Las Vegas Rock 'n' Roll Half-Marathon, she was diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease. But that year, she still received a medal. The finisher's medal, which hung from her IV pole, was not hers. Sent by one of her friends who finished the race, the medal boosted her spirits during treatments and after other patients saw the positivity it brought, they wanted one too.
Inspired by the act, Kim Stemple launched the organization "We Finish Together". Since its inauguration, marathon runners, swimmers, triathletes, even spelling bee winners across the nation have donated their medals along with a handwritten message to those who need support.
We are humbled by Kim, a Balega Impi and living example of GRIT and GRACE. She is a true hero who lives her life fully and a pure symbol of UBUNTU - to share love and goodwill. Transforming her circumstance into an opportunity to spread light, she has inspired not only us, but a nation. Balega is proud to dedicate this year's Limited Edition Balega Grit and Grace socks to Kim and her relentless efforts to make our world a better place for everyone.
