“The best part was the inclusive and empowering atmosphere. The weekend is exciting regardless of who or what time you are running for, but running for an organization that works to empower women felt especially special. I’ve been so touched by how supportive and communicative everyone has been since the marathon which I think is an amazing show of all the work 261 Fearless Inc. put in to create a great team!”
