A note about runhers women’s association and the hers projects on #givingtuesday

Private funding has funded the runhers experiment and the associated research projects over the past few years. We recently became a 501c3 non-profit organization under the umbrella name “the hers projects.” Headquartered in Oklahoma City – runhers, walkhers, bikehers and Designing a Safer Woman are all projects under the umbrella.  With having so much more significant work to do, and so much farther to grow these and other projects, and other projects in design, the non-profit organization choice was the best way we could pursue to move up to new levels.

December 2nd is Giving Tuesday; and we’d love to have your support.  Any level of support is welcomed. We are looking for collaborating partners, corporations, and other like-minded organizations to partner with.  For individuals and/or small organizations, anything from $5 to $500 or more can help – everything adds up.  We’d love to have any/all in-kind donations that support our runs, walks and overall goal of helping as many woman as we can find their version of healthy and happy – through our programs and uniquely designed programming.  (Note: we will have our donate buttons up on the runhers and hers projects sites soon. You can direct your giving specifically to any program, i.e. runhers women’s association, by including that in your note. For now, you can also send any checks made out to “the hers projects” to P.O. Box 720627 – OKC, OK 73172)

Our goal is to significantly increase outreach and connectivity in each community we have a presence in. We will initiate and train more groups, design and hold more creative forums, as well as design immersive entertainment, education, and events (we currently have 9 significant events in design).  

We intend to further our already amazing research in women’s health and lifestyle with more collaborators and funding. Lastly, our women’s imagination lab and headquarters design is taking shape on paper.  Right now, some of the world’s most creative companies/people are offering design support, cultural ideas, and advice.  

We believe we are designing/developing a bold, audacious, one of a kind organization that can impact many, many women through “the hers projects.”  Below is our “about” the projects.  2015 is our year to kick off all the work we’ve been doing, behind the scenes, for the last few years!  Please help by getting involved with others in this culture changing, always evolving experiment!

Boston Marathon Relief Fund #OneBoston


Editor’s Note: Our running community worldwide is one family. Running is the universal language we all speak. Our hearts break for Boston, but our strength and courage in the face of these acts of terror will prevail. Good will always overcome evil. If you want to help with the Boston Marathon bombing recovery fund, here is the place to do it. Several Boston businesses have made commitments to the fund, including a $1 million commitment from John Hancock.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
