"When you get women together, something powerful happens." Lindsey Marcelli is responsible for harnessing the power of women across the globe through her Girls Gone Rx events. The all women's team competition brings women together while raising funds and awareness for breast cancer. Now an International series, GGRX started as a single event inspired by Lindsey's mother Linda who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. At the time or her diagnosis, Linda's three children were in the military. Lindsey was stationed in Iraq for 15 months where she led her platoon on mission after mission and earned a bronze star. In the midst of all of this, Lindsey received news of her mom's diagnosis over the phone.

"That day I waited an hour to call home and called her before leaving for a week-long mission. To this day I still cry just thinking back to that phone call. Not just crying about my own feelings, but can you imagine being her?! A mom, with 2 of 3 kids deployed, then you find out you have Breast Cancer…."

In our interview, we discuss how Lindsey coped with the news of her mother's cancer while being overseas, how Linda is doing now, and how Girls Gone Rx has thrived in the wake of Linda's battle with cancer. Since Linda's diagnosis, Lindsey has turned one event into forty, expanded internationally to Canada, Sweden, and Australia, and added another competition series: Lift Up, a Women's Only Olympic Weightlifting competition (non-sanctioned). Not to mention, Girls Gone Rx raised over $80,000 in 2016.
