The Re-Imagined Blog
Behind the Curtain
Hi there! Welcome to Behind the Curtain – The Runway for Recovery Blog. 2019 has been a big year for Runway – we’ve spent the last few months reimagining everything that our organization does and stands for, in hopes of improving and maximizing the impact we can have on our community. This reimagination has been 13 years in the making; and we can honestly say that we’re ready to take on this challenge with Executive Director Olivia Achtmeyer Boger leading the way.
You can read more about our re-Imagination here. As we went through this process, we realized that while many people applauded us for building such a strong community at our annual October event, we were missing out on an opportunity to strengthen that community during the remaining 11 months of the year. So, like many organizations, we’re turning here – to our digital space. We’ve decided to create an online community where we can pull back the curtain and share more about the behind-the-scenes at Runway. We also hope to share stories about our models; provide information about breast cancer for victims, survivors, and family and friends; and offer a place to connect with others who share similar experiences with breast cancer.
There are so many inspirational stories to share and so many people to honor – our hope is that Behind the Curtain will give us the space to do just that.
