2015 5K Winner, Women's Division

Isabelle Christiansen

Isabelle Christiansen, age 14 was the first female runner to cross the finish line at the 2015 Celebrate Differences 5K race with a time of 22:07. An 8th grader, she is no stranger to running as she runs track and cross country at school. Being part of the race and Celebrate Differences has always been important to her. Ryan, her amazing little brother, has down syndrome. Her personal mission is to embrace everyone regardless of their differences and she loves this particular race because it is fun to see all different people participating.

She loves racing but more importantly, she loves drawing attention and helping to raise funds for Celebrate Differences, an organization near and dear to her heart for what they do in and for the community. Outside of school and running, Isabelle likes to hang out with friends, do volunteer work and is active as the secretary for the National Honor Society at school.
