CORONA, CA- Imagine walking 521 miles in a 15 day period. You’re engulfed by extreme heat, sweat pours down your brow, and with every step your feet throb like a heartbeat. This will soon be the reality for Yolanda Holder, Guinness World Record holder for most marathons run in a year. Yolanda has experienced many hardships to get to the top, but nothing could prepare her for the loss of both parents to type 2 diabetes. When her mother passed September 2,2012, Holder vowed to do her part to prevent diabetes from taking another loved one. Despite being grief stricken, she took to action and ‘Extreme Walk 4 Diabetes’ was born. On August 19th, she will embark on an amazing journey across California, starting in Corona, at Corona Nissan and finishing in Oakland, at the American Diabetes Association office, on the anniversary of her mother Annette Norton’s passing. Her mission is to promote the benefits of walking 30 minutes a day and encourage people of all ages to get out and get fit while having fun! Holder hopes to raise over $5,000 when she crosses the finish line in Oakland. She is also encouraging her fans, and supporters to join her as she passes through their cities. You can track Yolanda’s progress through her Facebook page and at www.yolandaholder.com.
