Karen Rudolph and Arthur Simmons walking at Red Power Divas event

Another Silicon Valley-based organization founded by Sharon Chatman, Red Power Divas, got Jimi’s wife Karen Rudolph and son Arthur Simmons involved in their walking fitness program. Karen is an active member of the Red Power Divas, a diverse support group of individuals dedicated to living healthy, active lives. While each member is encouraged to complete a Half or Full Marathon, the Red Power Divas was primarily founded to challenge oneself to become fit, meet new people, and have a great support system while becoming educated about a healthy lifestyle.

Arthur participated in the FitKidz program, an initiative aimed to educate and empower our youth. At the age of thirteen, Arthur is helping other kids to realize that exercise and healthy eating can be fun. Both Karen and Arthur completed their first half marathon!
