Meet Team Tell Every Amazing Lady®’s 2024 United Airlines Half Marathon Runner, Yvonne!

I lost a dear friend of mine to ovarian cancer two years ago. She was the same age as me, and also a runner and a triathlete. When I saw that Tell Every Amazing Lady® was one of the charities involved in the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half, I knew that this was the charity I wanted to run for and raise money for as a tribute to my friend.

My friend Louisa dealt with her diagnosis with courage, grace, acceptance and even humor. I take the lessons I learned from her and try and apply them every day.

I have a few goals for the 2024 United Airlines Half Marathon! I had extensive knee surgery in September 2022 and ran my first half-marathon in November 2023 which was amazing although I did have some residual pain. My goal for this race is a pain free race! Apart from that, I want to raise lots of money for Tell Every Amazing Lady® and to have fun!

I love how running makes me feel – free, strong, confident, like I can do anything! I also love that I can pretty much do it anywhere, anytime and I get to enjoy and explore the environment I am in.

If I had the power to make a difference, I would love for there to be greater awareness around ovarian cancer and a more robust process for screening so more women could be diagnosed earlier.

Please show up and cheer us on! Every spectator and cheer helps!
