THE STORY:

My name is Christine Reffel

Five years ago I ran my first half marathon.  This April I will be running my first marathon.  I will be running the Boston Marathon for . 261® FEARLESS, INC a global non-profit organization founded by pioneer runner, Kathrine Switzer.

261® FEARLESS, INC a global community of women, be she a walker, jogger, runner or front of the pack racer, who have found strength, power and fearlessness fromt putting one foot in front of the other. 

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. 

The 2017 Boston Marathon is the 50th Anniversary of Kathrine's historic run as the first woman to run the marathon, wearing an official race bib (261) in the all-male event.  She had to fend off an angry race director at mile two.  I can relate to Kathrine's efforts from my days in high school being the only girl on the all boys ice hockey team. Dealing with angry parents at games ridiculing me in the bathroom where i changed befor games, and dealing with the backlash on the ice from opposing players.

I am honnered to be on TEAM 261 FEARLESS and will line up on the Boston Marathon start line with Kathrine to celebrate another half century of women running. Together, we celebrate fearlessness on the streets of Boston.

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.

Thank you ever so much for supporting this wonderful cause that is near and dear to my heart while making a dream come true for me to be able to run the Boston Marathon.
