Beverly has recently earned her way into a unique 2nd chance opportunity as a former state titleholder to possibly earn the title of "Mrs. Of the Americas", which she would then, compete at Mrs World on December 16th 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa!  She, and 11 other title holders around the nation is fundraising for 4 national organizations as sponsored by Mrs. America during the month of October only!  The charities are: MADD, SUSAN G. KOMEN and VICTORIA's VOICE and the NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. All proceeds from this fundraiser event will be distributed through the 4 charities as "votes" in sending Beverly to Mrs. World as "Mrs. Of the Americas" titleholder!


Votes accepted here also: ($2.50 each)


This event has been organized by Beverly Hartle, a resident of Meridian, Idaho and former Mrs. Idaho America 2012. She has currently served as a staff member for the Mrs. Idaho America pageant over the last 5 years since her reign ended.  Beverly is a 48 year old wife, mother of 4 children, and "Glamma" to one grand-daughter.  She has run well over 50 fun/run races over the last 12 years...including 14 Half Marathons, and is currently training for her first Ultra Marathon (50k) in San Francisco next month.  She loves challenging herself while motivating and inspiring others to step outside their comfort zones, learning to feel confident in their own bodies and knowing they CAN achieve great things with positive thinking and goals!  She believes that age is just a number and that staying FIT, feeling FAB and having FUN and smiling on her life's journey, is what keeps her positive and young at heart!  Competing for an ULTRA marathon in November and perhaps an ULTRA pageant in December would be the icing on the cake for continuing to inspire, motivate and encourage women that no dream is ever unachievable if you just allow yourself to SHINE! 

She is thrilled for the opportunity to be a conduit in fundraising for charities close to her heart with friends and family who have been impacted in one way or anotherthrough what these causes represent.  She, herself experienced a breast cancer scare this past summer and encourages all women over 40 to schedule their mammograms annually.  Beverly would love your support as you come walk with her "in memory", "celebration" or "in tribute" for a cause close to your heart and your family's.  Through generosity, donations and support for these charities is why she's decided to accept this challenge and would thrilled to represent Idaho once again and all of America at Mrs World!!
