Greenhouse Scholars Opens Registration for Venus de Miles Women’s Athletic Event Series
Boulder, Colo. – February 12, 2016 – Greenhouse Scholars, an education based non-profit organization, has opened registration for Venus de Miles, its popular annual women’s athletic events in Colorado and Illinois.
The non-competitive event welcomes women of all ages and athletic abilities to participate in a fun and inspiring day while giving back to their community. Greenhouse Scholars, the sole beneficiary of the events, helps under-resourced, high performing young people reach their true potential as community leaders. These students have overcome challenges such as homelessness, poverty, violence, and other dire circumstances to be mentors, pioneers, researchers, activists, and advocates.
“Venus de Miles is an exciting event that brings together women from all across the country in the spirit of sisterhood in the spirit of giving back to the community,” said Andrea Suponcic, Venus de Miles co-director. “The Scholars who benefit from these events are exceptional students and leaders. Venus de Miles is a celebration of their achievements as well as the achievements of our participants.”
In its fifth year, Venus de Miles Illinois will take place on Saturday, July 23 and include two road ride distances along with a 5k run course. The ninth annual Venus de Miles Colorado will take place a month later on Saturday, August 27 and include three road ride courses for participants to choose from.
Venus de Miles is known for providing an exceptional event experience and first-rate customer service for participants from registration through event day. No details are overlooked: multiple convenient packet pick-up locations, stylish complimentary t-shirts, on-course mechanical support and rest stops stocked with an array of snacks for riders, and a finish line festival featuring a lunch, spa services and other thoughtful touches, cocktails, unique vendors, music, and more. The celebratory vibe, camaraderie, and ability to give back while accomplishing a personal goal makes Venus de Miles ideal for women of all athletic and experience levels.
