We're moving!

We're moving our new stories to Denison.edu, the college's super-sweet mothership. Over time, we'll be moving some of our best past stories from TheDEN over there too. In the meantime, we've made available an archive of all stories here. This archive will be available for a few months before this site is permanently shut down. See you at Denison.edu! - June 2016

Going back to give back

Dee Salukombo '12 and Sarah Torrens prepare books, computers, and other educational supplies for their long journey to Kirotshe in the Congo.

If you follow TheDEN or DenisonBigRed.com, you know about Makorobondo Kamongwa “Dee” Salukombo ’12.

Now the world knows about him, too, because on Friday, the Associated Press wire service published a story by Rusty Miller called “So many angels have guided this runner’s journey.” Over the last several days, under various headlines, that story has been published by hundreds newspapers and websites practically everywhere, including Sports Illustrated’s SI.com.

It’s a lovely telling of Salukombo’s life so far, his relationship with his coach’s family, and the next journey he has planned: to return to his home village in the Congo, with help in hand.

Go ahead, click on it. This will brighten your week.
