Julie Main Woman Leader Scholarship awarded to Radka Dopitova Willson

Radka Dopitova Willson, Fitness Specialist, World Bank Fitness Center awarded the Julie Main Woman Leader Scholarship at IHRSA 2013.

The Julie Main scholarship is named for a past president and board member for IHRSA. After being diagnosed with breast cancer she turned her adversity into something positive for her and others battling the disease by creating the Cancer Well-fit Program, which helps patients feel better about themselves and cope with cancer through exercise.

This year’s winner, Radka Dopitova Willson, knows all too well what Main was going through. She is a breast cancer survivor and has created many programs and training for survivors.

Congratulations to Radka for exemplifing what Julie Main stood for: courage, perseverance, excellence and professionalism with contributions to the industry and their community.
