Married to her high school sweetheart for the past 11 years, Kathy is a mother to two wildly active little boys, a 6-year-old named Travis and a 4-year-old named Emmett. An avid distance runner for over 10 years, Kathy has recently taken her distance running to the next level by competing in ultra-marathon races. Kathy holds running close to her heart because it has given her hope even in her darkest moments, when she thought her son may not live to see another day.
When we were planning the SHE Rocks Virtual Run on Mother’s Day, our biggest internal challenge/struggle was to make sure the virtual run was inclusive of every SHE, because regardless of whether or not you’re a mother, every woman has an immense capacity to love and care for others, be that their own child, niece or nephew, students, beloved animal, community or others. The SHE Rocks Virtual Run is all about celebrating every woman, every type of mother and the unique capacity every woman has to love. Therefore, we thought in true SHE fashion, why wouldn’t we give all of our lovely participants the opportunity to spread that love even further and touch others in the process.
