Charlotte resident Jean Andersson-Swayze was one of hundreds of thousands of demonstrators to walk in January’s Women’s March on Washington following President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Wanting to keep the momentum going back in Vermont, Andersson-Swayze and her workout buddies hatched a plan for a 5K run that would capture the spirit of the march. Active bodies break out their pink hats for the Persist 5K Run/Walk, a noncompetitive jaunt beginning at Burlington’s Battery Park and taking participants along Lake Champlain and through Queen City streets. The excursion isn’t timed and is open to all. As Andersson-Swayze puts it in a press release, “We want everyone who loves and respects women to participate!”
