Alaska Run for Women 2007:
Celebrate Longevity

2007 Run ForQWomen event design

client:  Alaska Run For Women
project: event design

For their fifteenth anniversary, the Alaska Run For Women asked for a celebratory design.

In a frivolous moment I drew this woman with an impossibly high kick.  It’s how I like to feel at the end of a race: strong, spirited and with enough energy to kick it in to the finish line.  I hope that all women are equally strong during the battle with cancer -- and at its end, strong enough to raise their heads, their heels and “kick it!”

The popularity of this high kicker led to her becoming the basis of a new logo for the Alaska Run For Women.

"As a board member and past president of the Alaska Run for Women, I had the pleasure of working with Kim on many occasions beginning in 1994.  Each year we ask a local artist to create a design for our event, and  Kim has created 6 beautiful and inspiring designs over the years. We use the designs on promotional literature as well as on T-shirts and other sales merchandise, and our participants always love a "Kim O" design! We hope to have the pleasure of working with Kim many more times in the coming years."
