Training for and completing the marathon gave Higginbotham a new perspective on business "fearlessness" too.

About the Presenter

In 2003, Jennifer walked into the surgeon's office for the first time after her lumpectomy with both a sense of relief of having the tumor removed and a sense of trepidation. The sense of trepidation grew when I looked into the sad, grief filled eyes of the surgeon. I knew what she was about to tell me would be harder than the first time, when she said, "The tumor is malignant."

She gently revealed to me that she had just received the pathology report back and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes. After much pressuring from me, she revealed that 15 of the 23 nodes were found to be positive of cancer. As I had a full week of becoming an expert at breast cancer, I asked if it had been detected in my blood, and she replied "yes". She looked at me and said words I will never forget. She said, "If anyone can beat this, it's you." She gave me hope, when I could fine none.

As Vickie Gerard writes in her book, There's No Place Like Hope, "Hope-what a wonderful, beautiful word it is. I had not understood until that moment that all my deepest emotions had evolved around that word. The roller coaster ride that had become my life had all been driven by the loss of, and the renewed search for-hope. Yes, I would have loved a guarantee that I would get well, but I knew that that was impossible. What I had been searching for was hope. Without hope I could find no foothold, nothing to stop my spiraling, downward fall."

It is now my passion to share that hope with others.



Women's Athletic Network Event - 2nd Annual 19K Right to Run Race

Women TIES and its division the Women's Athletic Network proudly supports the 2nd Annual 19K Right to Run Race.

The Women's Right to Run is an event featuring
both a 19K and a 5K running race in historic Seneca Falls, NY on Saturday May 13, 2017– the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend. The event is open to all, it is NOT a women only event.

Seneca Falls was the site of the first Women's Rights Convention in 1848 and is known as the Birthplace of Women's Rights.

The course is picturesque and relatively flat. Both distances run through the New York Chiropractic College, by the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house, and by the Vendor Village – which is located on a major street in town. It will end at the future home of The National Women's Hall of Fame, the Seneca Knitting Mill. The event is a fundraiser for the renovation and will become The Center for Great Women.

About the Presenter

Long distance running legend, activist and author Kathrine Switzer is the national spokesperson for the run. In 1967 Switzer became the first women to officially run and finish the then all-male Boston Marathon, and won the New York City Marathon in 1974.
