Arlene Pieper, Barr trailblazer and longtime fitness advocate, needs help. Please read more below and consider donating if you are able. ... See MoreSee Less

This special request is timely as Kathrine Switzer returns to Boston this weekend to repeat her historic run, our very own trail blazer, Arlene is in need of some help. Arlene Piper became the first woman to officially complete a marathon in the United States when she ran the Pikes Peak Marathon in a pair of dime store shoes in 1959. Arlene has spent her life preaching the values of fitness and exercise for men and women and now she needs our support. At 87 years old, Arlene resides in Fresno, California and has lived in her house for over 50 years. Due to the heavy storms in the Fresno area this past fall and winter, her home was severely damaged. Currently, it's estimated that her home has suffered $32,650 in damages. Additionally, nearly all of her furniture is too damaged for continued use because of the rainfall and moisture in the house, and she is in need of new household items and clothes. By donating, you are helping to give Arlene her home back. Funds will be used for home repairs and to update her home to be senior accessible. Including labor, this comes to $52,650. The remaining fund will help her pay for home care, future medical expenses, property upkeep, and home improvements. If you are willing to spare a few dollars to help this incredible lady, you can learn more here: www.gofundme.com/wck8q4-arlene-piepers-house-repair
