The Running Women Global Community, Notorious RBG, and running for mental health

 In July Zahra Nafar of Ottawa started an online group called Running Women Global Community. The goal was to create an inclusive space for women runners to connect during COVID-19. A couple of months later, when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, the group decided to launch their first virtual run in honour of the trailblazing Supreme Court Justice.
