Photo of Joanna WinsboroughTEAM KEEN is proud to be running the 2022 Marathon in memory of a special friend to KEEN: Joanna Winsborough. As National Development Director for KEEN, Joanna leveraged her creativity and boundless enthusiasm as she engaged donors, stakeholders, and community members in support of KEEN’s mission. Joanna initiated the relationship between KEEN and the Los Angeles Marathon in 2017, creating “Team KEEN.” The marathon has offered a unique opportunity to showcase KEEN’s mission of empowering young athletes with disabilities through the participation of Duo-Teams, consisting of runner and rider athlete partners.
