Heard About the World Marathon Challenge

You’ve heard about the World Marathon Challenge, haven’t you? It’s 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents, with the first race starting on Jan. 23 in Antarctica. While any athlete who takes on this challenge must be an incredible person, I want you to know the story of Heather Hawkins. She’s a 50-year-old mom from Australia who’s also an ovarian cancer survivor. Her’s is an inspiring story of a woman who takes on extreme challenges to raise awareness and money to fight cancer. Check out her story here. Who do you know that “runs the extra mile” for a great cause? Join our Waconia Amateur Running Club check us out on facebook!
