runhers to launch Enid Group

January 24th Date Set

Oklahoma City based runhers, a women’s lifestyle association, announces that it will be kicking off its Enid Group on January 24th at 6:30pm at Callahan’s, with a short celebration walk followed by a meet and greet to gather ideas on how to expand the reach and grow the runhers culture in the Enid area.  The runhers Enid group will be hosting training runs/walks, events and entertaining monthly forums.

runhers Director of Special Projects Sheila Kidder states, “We were so excited when the ladies in Enid contacted us to start up a group there. ” Kidder continues, “We are so much more than our name ‘runhers’ alludes to – our goal is to be a unifier and a community catalyst for a healthy, smart lifestyle.  Our goal is to help each woman as much as we can on her journey towards health happiness – and with Adina Childs, Kim Boeckman,  Sarah Brennan and the Enid team leadership we look forward to sharing and learning with the Enid Community.”

runhers Enid Director Adina Childs comments, “I loved what runhers was doing for women in other Oklahoma communities and I wanted to see that culture grow here in Enid as well.”  Childsstates, “Enid has a lot of positive things going on, and we think that this organization can help drive a more healthy and energized culture into the community.  We know women are the family catalysts, so we want to work with health organizations and other like-minded community resources to get Enid women and kids moving!”

february meeting – safety & self defense forum for women

Safety & Self Defense Forum for Women set for February 13th
“Focus is on what women need to know”

runhers, a women’s health and lifestyle organization headquartered in OKC, announced today it was holding a women’s safety & self-defense forum on Monday, February 13th – beginning at 7:00pm in the Integris Cancer Institute of Oklahoma Conference Center. The event is free and open to the public. With the longer winter days and so many women out running, walking, shopping and carrying on daily duties in the early morning or evening darkness – women are literally at risk. Women need to be prepared, more aware, more alert and know what to do in case the unthinkable presents itself. Please join us for this very important discussion and demonstration by Leslie NesSmith. The national statistics on violence against women are incredibly disturbing. The New York Times last December reported from National Studies that 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted in the US. Many times these assaults are from a relationship gone horribly wrong, and other times they are random or stalking attacks carried out by a stranger who sees a situational vulnerability they can exploit. It’s wrong in any event! runhers Energy Director and Coach Sara McCauley states, “Women’s safety is critically important in all we do here at runhers, we want to take what we know and help educate others in the OKC metro on the importance of understanding the risks and having a plan to respond to it, before it happens.” Sara continues, “Our forum with Leslie will equip women with information that will reduce as many risks as possible by knowing what to do, when.”

About Leslie – Leslie NesSmith has been involved with martial arts and self-defense for a number of years. She competed in the US Open Kung Fu Championships (2000) and won first and second place medals in kata and sparring. Leslie has a personal passion for educating women in self-defense, as she herself became a statistic at the age of 19 when she was the victim of an assault. Fortunately Leslie escaped the attack and began her quest for personal self-defense knowledge.
