I'm a proud ambassador for Run 4 All Women, a growing national movement elevating conversations about women's issues, and empowering grassroots activism through fitness. We'll be planning coordinated running events in communities throughout the U.S. in the summer of 2017, raising money for Planned Parenthood, and awareness about the critical importance of this organization in the lives and health of women everywhere. See my previous post "When Everything Clicks," for the background on my decision to apply for this position, and this feature in New York Magazine on the original run that took place in January of 2017.
Run 4 All Women's guiding principles:
- We engage in grassroots activism in our daily lives
- We seek to empower others through fitness
- We foster alignment within our communities around a common goal
- We resist the status quo and work tirelessly to advance the conversation around women's issues
Check us out and sign up for email updates here: www.run4allwomen.com. In the coming months, I'll be working with this awesome team of women to stage a series of Run 4 All Women events that will take place across the U.S., and will keep this page updated wth information about local event(s) in San Diego County as they become available.
Stay tuned, and thanks for your support!
