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.

 Our COVID-19 Response

The past months have been challenging for us all. We hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this unusual time in our world. For the past two years the 5K was a virtual event but we are excited to welcome everyone back to Yellow Springs in 2022. The event will adhere to best health practices related to stoping the spread of Covid-19 and keeping everyone safe and healthy. As we are unable to predict the status Covid-19 recommendations for June, details will be sent out and posted closer to the event. 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 Thank You for your support of the virtual events. We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2022 5K!

Sincerely,     All of us at Simply Women Ohio
