“The Power of One”

It only takes ONE educated girl to inspire and transform a community.  It only takes ONE woman to create a resource for other women to find hope and strength for themselves and their families.

The Running Goddess is an organization committed to supporting women and girls in their pursuit of health and education. Through your involvement, girls locally and abroad will be uplifted. By nurturing a girl’s love of science, or helping women lead balanced and healthy lives, your contribution will make a difference.


Through the generosity of our sponsors, volunteers and race participants, The Running Goddess is proud to donate $7000 to the following organizations:

  • Katonah Education and Exchange Program (KEEP) / Kakenya Center for Excellence in Kenya: $3000
  • Support Connection of Yorktown Heights: $2000
  • The Running Goddess Scholarship: $1000
  • The Running Goddess International Scholarship / Asian University for Women in Bangladesh: $1000

Thank you all so much for supporting women and girls health and education in the sciences and “The Power of One” to transform lives and communities locally and abroad.

Bettina, Lisa, De, Mike, Trisha, Wendy, Jim and Lee

As our 2014 TRG Scholarship winner, Ms. Alyson Winter is the embodiment of a TRG scholar-athlete. While attendng Ossining High School, Alyson spent two summers researching the effect of psychology on the recovery of breast cancer patients. Her summer research study will have meaningful impact on the treatment plans for these women. As a result she was chosen to represent Westchester and our country at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles in May. As captain of her Varsity Field Hockey and Gymnastic Teams, she is also a natural leader. She will be attending Providence College in the fall.
To paraphrase her words, “My dream for the future is to combine these two passions of health and science. Education and health empower women and give them the necessary confidence to achieve greatness; this combination makes anything possible.”
