GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) — Women of all ages gathered together in downtown Grand Rapids on April 17th, 2016 for one purpose…to run! The Gazelle Girl Half Marathon and 5K is designed to empower women and promote a healthy lifestyle as well as helping out local non-profits. This year nearly 4,000 women came out to run/walk and WOTV 4 Women is a proud media sponsor.
The day before the big race, WOTV 4 Women interviewed race participants and ask them about what’ inspires them to hit the pavement? It was both inspiring and uplifting to hear the different reasons why these women run.
