Mary: Give yourself grace and be flexible.
Connect and Rise with Mary Rice-Boothe, runner, educator, wife, and mom. Mary shares her journey through the loss of her father and how it shaped her life. She also discusses donating a kidney to her husband in August of 2020. You will be uplifted by her strength and compassion! Mary also works with school systems across the country to “dismantle systemic racism one brick at a time.” She gives some excellent strategies to apply in our own lives. Mary will inspire you with her insight and encouragement to have the “unpracticed conversations” and also to remember to give yourself grace. When we realize that we can't control the future and open ourselves to be flexible and tolerant in the moment, the beauty of the collective arms of those around us becomes even more apparent and propels us onward.
