SingleStone Brings Kathrine Switzer to Richmond for VCU Massey Cancer Center Fundraiser

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) - SingleStone, a Richmond, Va.-based consulting firm that specializes in customer experience solutions, is the title sponsor for a fundraiser benefitting the VCU Massey Cancer Center.

On Friday, November 13th at 6:00 p.m., the Massey Challenge, in partnership with SingleStone, will host a fundraiser featuring Kathrine Switzer, a storied female runner who has changed the face of women's running and sports participation the world over. The fundraiser benefits the VCU Massey Cancer Center through the Caped CUREsaders, a Massey Challenge team led by Jennifer Mott.

In 1967, women were not officially allowed as participants in the Boston Marathon. Much has changed since then, and Kathrine Switzer was "the girl who started it all." Despite an attempt by the race director to physically take Switzer out of the race, she was the first woman to officially finish. This action set off a chain reaction that has brought inspiration, opportunities and recognition to women in sports all over the world.

"Our name, SingleStone, refers to the expanding ripples that a single stone thrown into a body of water creates. Each human interaction has a ripple effect. Kathrine Switzer and Massey are examples of this truth," said Chris Little, SingleStone founding principal and CEO. "SingleStone creates a positive impact on people and business by designing intentional, people-focused customer experiences. We support all those who are working to change our world in positive ways. We are proud to bring Kathrine Switzer, a woman who has made such a difference for women and sports, together with the VCU Massey Cancer Center, one of the best cancer centers in the U.S." 

Switzer, introduced by running historian and author Roger Robinson, will speak on how to "Be The Hero In Your Own Life," a message that many will carry with them as they run the Anthem Richmond Marathon the following morning.
