FitOne - the evolution of the Women's Fitness Celebration
Move For Fun, Get Fit For Life!
In 1993, Womens Fitness Celebration co-founder Anne Audain had a vision to inspire women to come to a starting line and finish a 5K distance. Over the 20 years since the event was founded, there have been awe inspiring leaps in the participation of women in run/walk events from the 5K to the marathon and beyond.
In 2001, St. Lukes became the presenting sponsor of the Celebration. In 2013 and in collaboration with Anne, St. Lukes identified an even greater opportunity for the event. With FitOne, we are committed to providing further opportunities to inspire women, children and families to become active participants of fun, healthy living ultimately building healthier communities.
With the picturesque 5K run/walk through downtown Boise, a new wave for families to participate together in the 5K, an all-new womens only 9K, the 2-day FitOne Expo, and a womens only half marathon on the horizon for 2014, FitOne is a community event, organized for the benefit of participants and the promotion of health and fitness.
