Q: Why did you create this race?
A: So little bit of back
ground…I am in a Landmark Education program called SELP...Self Expression and Leadership Program….growth and
development at its finest J so within the course you take on a project
and have it come to reality before Feb 19th…end of class…with measurable
results in an area of life you are passionate about. I am
committed all women know their greatness. I took on this race…and along the way everything in you starts to
scream…you can’t do this, you’re not going to do this, no one will be
there…etc…of course on the other side is power and freedom J it is a daily challenge and I get I
am in the perfect place.
heard of Susan Komen walk for breast cancer or Habitat for Humanity…those projects came out of this program
plus millions more of all sizes. It’s a trip…and the true
power comes in enrolling your community to take on the project with you…really create something more
powerful together than any 1 person could have done on their own.
Q: What do you intend on
accomplishing out of this event?
A: Touch, move and inspire
women in an area of life important to them. Have them see themselves as worthy & beautiful.
Have them take on something in their life they ordinarily wouldn't have and share that with someone
