Welcome to Our Site!
I am Paloma Wiggins. I am a Senior at Yellow Springs High School. I am the Director of Simply Women Ohio a small non-profit started nearly five years ago. Please click here for more information about the history of the organization and our annual 5k Event. Or click the video link to see footage from our very first 5k event in 2009. The 2012 5k was great! We had a record turnout of 230 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.
