For our final #WomenCrushWednesday (we know it's Thursday, but we wanted to share the love anyway), we wanted to highlight Cali Gaston. In April of 2015, Cali and her husband were both diagnosed with cancer one week apart from one another. Together, there was a 65% chance they’d develop cancer down the road, and set out to raise $6500. Now, through their mutual support, there’s a 95% chance they’ll be cancer free at ten years! As a result, Cali set out to raise a whopping $9500. We chose her story because of the remarkable show of unified strength and support. Cali’s story represents the core values of our race on Saturday, and we’re so thankful to have women like her inspiring us to stand together today, tomorrow, and forever.
You can check out Cali's full story at womens4miler.com, and it's never too late to share your own stories by emailing email@example.com. See you this Saturday!
We can’t believe race day is only two days away! Remember to pick up your Race Packets at John Paul Jones Arena tomorrow from 4 to 7 pm! Go to womens4miler.com for more details.
