Five Haitian runners are set to take on the New York City Marathon on Sunday.
Each runner won a place on the team by taking top spots in a qualifying race this summer in their country.
Carline Lamour says the physical and mental hardships she endured while training as her country rebuilds were worth the chance to compete in the marathon. She says the race will fulfill a dream and expose her to new experiences.
The five Haitians join five other runners, including actress Pamela Anderson, to make up Team J/P HRO.
