THE STORY:

261 Fearless truly has an inspiring goal to create social change through running. Running – and the people who have run with me – have helped me cultivate discipline, perseverance and the courage to face new challenges. And I see these values reflected in the character and actions of my coworkers at Bose. I’m proud that the company I work for is a corporate sponsor of 261 Fearless and honored that I get to represent both Bose and 261 Fearless in the marathon.


More about 261 Fearless -

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. 


In 1967, Kathrine was the first woman to wear a race bib in the Boston Marathon, and she had to defend those numbers from an angry race director who tried forcibly to remove her from the race at the two mile mark because she was a woman in what was then considered a Men’s-Only event. Her race bib number was 261, Kathrine courageously finished the race, and now 261 has come to mean Fearless in the face of a challenge. Kathrine has dedicated her career to creating opportunities for women to run and recently created a global non-profit, 261 Fearless, Inc. Kathrine, at age 70 again ran the Boston Marathon this year, 50 years later, to bring attention to 261 Fearless. Now she is celebrating on the streets of New York. As the only female New Yorker winner (1974), she will run the five borough course for the first time. 


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.
