About Our Founder
Colleen Gonzalez graduated from Rollins College with a BA degree in Organizational Behavior. For over ten years Colleen worked in the field of
human resources. During her professional career she worked in the hospitality and medical industry as a generalist, manager, and director
In 2009, Colleen learned about a cross country running program at other schools and questioned why her children’s school did not participate.
Colleen was informed that teachers must volunteer their time and fund their running teams. Simply put: no volunteers, no funds, no program.
Colleen put together an action plan to ensure her children’s school could have a cross country running team. Over time, she became aware of
other schools facing similar challenges because of not having experience, volunteers and supplies.
