Toledo Walleye, Jupmode and Toledo.com have joined forces to celebrate women in the 419.
Every day, mothers, sisters, grandmas, and girlfriends are making a difference in their neighborhoods. Helping others. Changing lives. Selflessly giving their time and energy. Using their voice to champion causes. Making a lasting impact in the 419.
We put out the call and what a response-- more than 100 AMAZING WOMEN were nominated for the first 419 Women Are Rad Night! Congratulations to all the women who are making our community strong.
These women don’t ask for recognition, but they deserve it. On Sunday, March 22, the Toledo Walleye will recognize six outstanding women who are making huge contributions to our community in their own way.
The six nominees will each receive $500 to benefit the charity of their choice. An online vote determines one honoree who will receive an additional $1,000 for their cause.

“Katie Peters (KP) is a true inspiration! I invited Katie to speak at Wood County Hospital’s Celebrating Nursing Kick-off Event in May of 2018, after hearing about her from a mutual friend. I plan these every year and like to kick of the celebration with a motivational, humorous, and inspirational speaker every time, as I know that everyone can use a nice pick-me-up every now and then. The audience of nurses, their families, and I were not disappointed! Katie has a true gift; we laughed, we cried, and I personally prayed that I too could change my outlook to one that uses kindness more often than not. Using her true life stories and witty connections to the real world, she connected with everyone in the room. If you want to be inspired, want to laugh, and want to take a few points home with you to improve your own life, you can’t go wrong with KP! I have also been asked by many to have her back for the whole hospital and I will definitely work to make this happen”.
