Additionally, four Vista View team members were selected to speak with Mrs. Crawford and Para-Olympian Amy Purdy (right) at a Target/Always question and answer panel at Target Headquarters on Nov. 9. They shared their experience with Girls on the Run and were able to ask Purdy questions about her motivation and success.
