Marathon runner Gail White presentation
April 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Beaver Dam chapter of American Association of University Women (AAUW) invites you to their April 24 program at 6:30 p.m. in the McClure conference room at Beaver Dam Hospital. Marathon runner Gail White from Beaver Dam will be the featured speaker. Gail started running marathons at age 55. She soon set her sights on becoming a member of the Seven Continents Club, created in 1995 with the goal of running a marathon on all 7 continents. Along with Gail, 478 men and 235 women have accomplished this feat to date. Now at the age of 62, Gail continues to run and will participate in the Boston Marathon in April, which she has competed in multiple times and continues to be her favorite.
Gail spoke to the AAUW group last year and wowed the crowd with her presentation. Not only did she speak about running, but her power point presentation took the viewers on an African safari and an Antarctica expedition. By popular demand, Gail has been invited to return. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.
