Led by Olympian, Mechelle Lewis Freeman, and Fitness Specialist, Jennifer Nash Forrester, TrackGirlz is a 501c3 nonprofit organization impacting health, communities, and education through track and field empowerment workshops for girls. Our programs and events provide direct interaction with global track & field female role models, including world-class athletes and coaches, from a sport proven to have health, educational, and social benefits. Track and Field was found to most likely to lead to higher education at four-year colleges and positively impacts behaviors, self-esteem, and overall health for teen girls. We intend to further the educational and training opportunities for young women through our workshops and by encouraging them to participate in local school and track club activities to further develop their skills.
Support our programs by becoming a scholarship partner or sponsoring a girl to attend our workshops. Featuring Olympic athletes and top industry experts, our workshops are designed for young ladies to gain insight on what it takes to be successful inside and outside the sport of track and field. Whether for fitness or sport specific goals, young women will be able to learn the fundamental movements that can be used to run, jump, or throw and also go through leadership and personal development workshops. Exclusive insights and tips will be given to learn how the sport can open doors to life changing opportunities, including access to higher education, professional careers, and community and cultural experiences.
