STRIVERS Running Club for Girls is a Natick based program established in 2009. The mission of the STRIVERS is to develop strong, confident, athletic, and community-loyal young women. This is achieved through the process of training and completing a 5k Road Race within a supportive team environment. To date, over 650 girls have successfully completed our program with 80 percent of our members running an average of three years as a STRIVER. The STRIVERS program is designed for 5th through 8th grade girls. Members become runners, experience the sense of accomplishment when they successfully complete a 5k, and learn the power that runners can bring to a community when they work together. The STRIVERS Inc. Scholarship Fund has been established to provide funds for those our program directly impacts. Our goal for the scholarship fund is to assist those individuals who have run with us or volunteered for us. The STRIVERS Inc. Scholarship will provide a one-time award to one or more high school students pursuing a college education. In addition, funds will also be made available for financial assistance for STRIVERS Running Club membership.
