Simply Women Ohio
Over the past couple of years, Bing Design has provided resources and support to a local organization called Simply Women Ohio. The effort is led by Paloma Wiggins, a student at Yellow Springs high school. Paloma is an avid runner, and the main reason that Simply Women began.
This year, Bing Design worked with Paloma and the organization to develop and launch a new WordPress site at simplywomenohio.org with news and information for women who like to run and walk in the area.
The main event for the group is the Simply Women 5k Run and Walk, which is scheduled for July 30, 2011, with a pre-race event in downtown YS on Friday, July 29 for packet and t-shirt pickup, motivational speakers, and music. The website provides an easy way for those wanting to participate to fill-out a registration form and pay for it all online. There is also a downloadable PDF that can be filled-out and mailed in with a check.
The event is getting substantial coverage in local media, and Paloma was able to discuss her passion with Mina Samuels, author of Run Like a Girl: How Strong Women Make Happy Lives (available on Amazon.com). If you live in the area, you might keep up with this site, and maybe sign-up for their July run/walk while you are there!
