(Carrera Internacional de la Mujer Iniciativa)

An idea that started several years ago, CIMI (Carrera Internacional de la Mujer Iniciativa) is an initiative for and about women. It started as a dream of the founder, Aracely Areas, to help people like her - women with a vision for their future, to build confidence and motivation through running, accomplishment and in turn benefiting from the health and exercise.

With the generous support of our donors, the purpose of CIMI is to foster programs and partnerships with schools and athletic associations to promote health, education, self-esteem and inspiration for women of all ages. Our goal is to sponsor yearly special events, providing training and educational programs, supporting health and exercise opportunities for girls and women with an emphasis on running activities and providing related training and equipment. With our younger participants, confidence established at an early age can be applied to all aspects of their lives, particularly in schools for bright futures. All this is offered free of any charge to our participants.

We became an official Non Profit in 2015 an official 501c3 Charity. Establishing a board of directors who meet quarterly to set goals and continue to move this cause forward.
