THE STORY:

  Hello Friends! 

I am excited to share that I will be running for Team 261 Fearless in the New York City Marathon this November. Over the years, running has become a way of life that challenges me, allows me to manage stress, connect with nature, meet new people and given me a sense of empowerment that helps me in all areas of my life. I love the self-acceptance and sense of pride in myself that I’ve gained through this sport. It’s for these reasons, that 261 Fearless is the perfect charity for me to support. 261Fearless aims to reach women all over the world and introduce them to the transformative power of running in overcoming adversity and challenges while connecting with other women in a safe and fun way. This is the first race I will run on behalf of a charity. After many, many miles it feels like it is time to give back to the sport that I love.  I have committed to raising at least $5,261 dollars for this unique organization. I hope you will consider supporting this great cause knowing you are helping women all over the globe have access to and experience the power of running in their lives.   





261 Fearless wrote -

261 Fearless, Inc. is a global non-profit organization founded by pioneer runner, Kathrine Switzer. 261 Fearless uses running as a vehicle to empower and unite women globally through the creation of communication platforms, clubs, training opportunities, ambassadors, merchandising and events. Through these networking opportunities, 261 Fearless breaks down the barriers of geography and creates a global community for women runners of all abilities to support and talk to each other, encouraging healthy living and a positive sense of self and fearlessness. 


It is the mission of 261 Fearless to bring active women together through a global supportive community – allowing fearless women to pass strength gained from running and walking onto women who are facing challenges and hence sparking a revolution of empowerment.  261 is the symbol that unites us as empowered runners and walkers. 


The 2017 Boston Marathon is the 50th Anniversary of Kathrine's historic run as the first woman to run the marathon, wearing an official race bib (261) in the all-male event.  She had to fend off an angry race director at mile two.  After finishing that race, Kathrine dedicated her life to providing opportunities around the world for women to run. 261 Fearless, Inc. is the legacy of inclusion and empowerment that she will pass to others.  All fundraisers on TEAM 261 FEARLESS will line up on the Boston Marathon start line with Kathrine to celebrate another half century of women running. Together, we celebrate fearlessness on the streets of Boston.


The funds raised will go to setting up global 261 Clubs, training programs, a powerful communications network and events so that women, many in fearful places, are made fearless by your efforts.   In particular, we need the ability to bring our 261 Club model of social, non-competitive running to women all over the world; we know creating the community of running women transforms them, and we need to get our training and support team out into the communities who need and want a club the most.
