Track and Field: Drew Edwards' life was never the same after a barefoot 13-year-old boy challenged him to a race. This was no ordinary "on-your-marks, get-set, go." No, this outdoor sprint took place at a war-torn refugee camp in Uganda where Edwards, who would become a 400-meter track athlete at DePaul, was on a relief mission in January of 2009. Edwards nosed out Abraham in a race that marked the beginning of a fast friendship. One day, Abraham invited Edwards to his hut. Click Here for the full story.
