Sadly, True’s body was found this weekend after he had gone missing during a solo 12 mile run in New Mexico’s Gila National Forest. The cause of death is still unknown.

    The best way people can honor my old friend and fellow Copper Canyon guide is to donate to his charity http://norawas.org which benefits the Raramuri Indians (AKA Tarahumara) as did the race Micah founded. The Raramuri are barely surviving the worst drought in Mexican history. Here’s a photo of Micah I took when we both lived in Guatemala, about 1988: http://evanravitz.com/Atitlan/Micah.jpg
