HAGEN HOPKINS 2017
Join Women2Women as we kick off our 7th year of programming. In
partnership with the Pagoda Pacers Athletic Club, we welcome iconic athlete,
sports and social advocate, author, and Emmy award-winning television
commentator, Kathrine Switzer. She was the ﬁrst woman to ofﬁcially enter and
run the Boston Marathon in 1967 - still a men's-only event in those days.
Sports history changed when she ofﬁcially registered and ﬁnished that
famous race. Switzer's entry created a worldwide uproar when the race
director attacked her mid-stride and tried to tear off her bib numbers and
remove her from the event, because she was a woman.
Radicalized by the incident, Switzer campaigned for sports equality for women,
and created opportunities for them. Kathrine will challenge you to become
the hero in your own life. This
enlightening address will
empower men and women
alike to re-examine their lives,
especially the negatives, and make changes; to develop a sense of vision, and be
a part of social history by giving back.
