Rare disease warrior Pamela Price ran 340 miles from LA to Las Vegas with Team Unlimited Women
Former American Ninja Warrior, Wipeout finalist and rare disease warrior Pamela Price ran 340 gruelling miles from the Santa Monica Pier to the Las Vegas sign with Team Unlimited Women for The Speed Project relay race.
In 51 hours, Pamela endured freezing temperatures, high elevation, desert heat and high winds as she and her teammates proved that women can do anything they set their minds to. The Speed Project included 65 teams from 12 countries.
Departing at 4 am from the Santa Monica Pier, Pamela took on relay segments, from fast 1-mile repeats for 24 miles in Death Valley to long 8-mile race segments at sunrise.
A trained dancer, Pamela traded in her pointe shoes for sneakers after discovering her love for distance running. Diagnosed with Behçet’s disease in 2013, a rare autoimmune disorder caused by inflammation of the blood vessels, Pamela lives with permanent nerve damage on her right side.
Scouted for NBC’s hit show, American Ninja Warrior, she also starred in TBS’ reboot of Wipeout, making it to the finals. Suffering from multiple concussions and a rotator cuff injury, Pamela continues to compete, run the mountains of SoCal and rock climb.
She has finished first place at races such as Valencia Trail Race, Spacerock Trail Race, Spartan Trail and Tougher Mudder. Off the course, she is the senior executive producer of the Hollywood Beauty Awards, known as the ‘Oscars of beauty’ and a journalist/Vice President of the daily news site, LATFusa.com.
In 2020, Pamela launched the care package community and rare disease resource program: We Care When You Flare, operated under WE CARE WHEN Inc. She is an active member of The American Behcet’s Disease Association and activist for the #BehcetsWarrior community, corresponding with women and men living with Behcet’s Disease around the world.
