Luel Nyang is originally from Souther Sudan and was one of the lost boys. Now Luel is an elite runner for Auburn University. We asked Luel why it was important for him to be a member of Team Darfur and this is what he had to say:
I joined Team Darfur because I’m devastated to see other people go through the same thing I did. The Sudanese government did the same thing to the southern Sudanese and no one said anything. It’s time to put a stop to it and raise awareness of what is going on in Sudan.
