Laura Mullins, the Director of runhers Norman, who discovered the opportunity for runhers to participate states, “We always try to do imaginative and connective things in our communities, so for us, having fun running in the middle of the night was right up our alley – and all for great causes.” OKC runhers Director Staci Patton picked up stage 200 to lead, “We love to do projects or participate where others benefit and our women can do something they may have never done before. The United Relay offers that, and being a part of running history gives us an opportunity to support some great missions.”
