Marathon Classic hosts first-ever Women's Summit


The Marathon Classic is one of the longest-running events on the LPGA tour and for the first time ever, the tournament  hosted an empowering Women's Summit on Tuesday.

Athletes, business women and even local celebrities gathered at Highland Meadows in Sylvania to take part in the "Driving Fore Balance" summit. 

"I was invited by a great group of women. It was wonderful to be around them. Very empowering women," said Morgan Beyer. "And then anytime you can mix in yoga into a wonderful afternoon is great."

Nearly 400 women came together to network and to learn how to balance their career with everyday life. 

"I'm enjoying the opportunity to meet people," said Asha Barnes. "There are people that have talents and interests that are similar to mine that I've never. And under these circumstances, we get to come together."

Some of the notable guests included Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' niece, and LPGA player and Good Morning America news anchor, Amy Robach. Both women shared their own personal testimonies.

Robach also shared her book with those who attending. 

After the women spoke, there was a yoga session led by Dan Nevins. Nevins is wounded warrior and a double-amputee. 

He also shared his inspirational story to the women during the session.

Many of the women hoped the summit will become a mainstay for Marathon week.
