Carrera Internacional de la Mujer Iniciativa (CIMI) is a volunteer-based organization that sponsors running events, training and educational health programs for girls and women from diverse backgrounds, ages 9 and up. These activities strengthen participant's confidence and independence though running and other physical activities.


Volunteers of CIMI are running enthusiasts who want to give back to the community. They believe in empowering girls and women through running. We also work with other organizations such as the Girls to Women in Palo Alto and provide them with volunteers to support programs with similar goals.

Over the years, we have witnessed our participant's lives transforming as they endured the training and reached the finished line. We have seen young girls gaining more confidence and many women achieving their 5K goals and more. Most of our participants have never ran before and it is their first ever 5k race when they start with CIMI.


CIMI, Inc., a California nonprofit corporation, is tax exempt under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
