We are a small charitable organization started 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.

Simply Women Ohio supports three primary goals:

  • To increase the participation of girls in sports and an overall lifestyle of health and fitness
  • To demonstrate and emphasize how being part of a team or group of fitness-minded women can be fun and build a sense of community
  • Develop 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 our annual 5k event, celebrating the leadership of a YSHS female identified athlete and also educational programs for girls in middle/high school in collaboration with Yellow Springs Schools, 365 Project, the Human Relations Commission, and the Yellow Springs Police Department. We also collaborate with school and community based athletic teams around events, uniforms, and other identified needs. SWO also partners with the YS Fems-Strong Girls Club.  YS Fems-Strong Girls Club is a group that was formed in McKinney Jr. High/YSHS and shares many of the same goals and values for female identifying students.

We hope you and yours are safe and healthy during this time in our world. Like many organizations and athletic events SWO held virtual events for two years but welcomed everyone back for the 2022 5K.  We are thrilled to invite you all to return to Yellow Springs for a visit and run through the streets of Yellow Springs in 2023. The event will adhere to best health practices related to stopping the spread of Covid-19 and keeping everyone safe and healthy in general. Be assured every participant and supporter of Simply Women Ohio (SWO) is so important to us!

We truly appreciate the support you have provided us in previous years and look forward to seeing all of you at the 2023 5K!

Sincerely,     All of us at Simply Women Ohio
