Our Work


We proudly established The STRIVERS Inc. Scholarship Fund in 2019.  This scholarship has been created to provide funds for those our program directly impacts.  Our goal for the scholarship fund is to assist the young women who have run with us and or volunteered for us.  Scholarship candidates will have exhibited a love of running, while inspiring others to run or have used their early running experiences with us to better themselves and the community where they reside.  The STRIVERS Inc. Scholarship Fund will provide a one-time award up to $2,500 to one or more high school students pursuing a college education or trade school.  In addition, funds will we awarded to runners and or projects that align with our mission. This scholarship also provides financial assistance to families who want to enroll their middle school daughters in the STRIVERS Running Club, helping to differ any monetary burden.
To date, thirteen young woman have been awarded our scholarship and we look forward to helping even more in the future.

STRIVERS Mother’s Day 5k

STRIVERS was the proud host and sponsor for this race from 2014 to 2018.  We welcomed 1,000 people each year who choose to start Mother’s Day off with the “gift” of an early morning run with great company. Each year, this race benefited Embrace A Family, a local organization who provides support for families faced with a recent cancer diagnosis and we were able to raise thousands during our 5 year run.  The MD5k has been retired so we may work on other initiatives.

Natick’s Annual Jingle Bell Run

This home town favorite road race brought together the Natick community and surrounding towns in a fun, family, festive-event for TEN years (2009-2019)!   The race raised thousands of dollars for many local organizations and we are so proud of the memories and impact that this little race leaves on our community.

This race has been retired and we thank our community and runners for 10 years of support!
