Gina founded ARC (Active Resolute Connect) based on her passion for empowering women by improving their mental, physical health and overall being through running.Everyone has a runner within.Through her program she uplifts women, and presents the sport to people who may not otherwise have access, or may not otherwise feel that they are able to run together.
