Welcome to Simply Women Ohio!

We are a small charitable organization started and maintained by students in the Yellow Springs, Ohio school district. Please click here for more information about the history of the organization and our annual fundraiser, the “simply women 5k run/walk for women and girls.”

Our goals reflect the reach of Simply Women Ohio:

  • Increasing participation of girls in sports and an overall lifestyle of health and fitness
  • Demonstrating and emphasizing how being part of a team or group of fitness-minded women can be fun and build a sense of community
  • Developing broader support structures in the Yellow Springs community for young women participating in sports and other healthy activities.

Our activities focus on these goals and include not only the annual 5k event, purchase of uniforms and equipment for local female athletics, but also educational program for girls in middle/high school in collaboration with Yellow Springs Schools, 365 Project, and the Human Relations Commission.
