Kathryn Hardie, a Senior Managing Director in our Technology segment and beloved member of the FTI Consulting community, passed away in 2018 after a 13-year battle with ovarian cancer. Her legacy inspired an annual fundraising campaign.
Run 4 Hardie began in 2018 when our Seattle office decided to honor Kathryn by participating in the Swedish SummeRun, a 5K fundraiser for the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer, an organization that supported Kathryn and her family through much of her treatment. To increase our impact, colleagues in our Technology segment extended an invitation to all employees and their families and friends across the globe to join in by completing personal 5Ks on the same day and raising funds.
In 2020, FTI Consulting employees from all our regions participated in the Run 4 Hardie and raised nearly USD$6,000 for the Rivkin Center. In total since its inception in 2018, the initiative has raised more than USD$15,000.
“Kathryn was a force of nature. Not only did she do her job exceptionally well, she could also do your job better than you. She cared about the details and pushed others to be their best. She was a mentor to me and to so many others, and I miss her very much.”Brian Ramos
Senior Director, Technology
“I never had the opportunity to know Kathryn but can tell from the stories of others that she had great spirit. This weekend in Melbourne, we were under extreme COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, and we were only allowed outside for one hour and within 5k of home. But it was an honor and privilege to use those to #Run4Hardie — and to be grateful for our health and inspired by a courageous woman.”Dawna Wright
