Proceeds fund our scholarships.

This annual need based scholarship is awarded to a female Junior, Senior or Graduate Ursuline College student demonstrating financial need pursuing a Bachelor of Arts or Graduate Degree in a business focused field.

We are proud to partner with Ursuline College, the only college in Ohio that focuses on the education of women. 90% of their students are strong, empowered women who are interested in changing the world – some locally and others globally. Ursuline students are artists, activists, mentors, difference-makers, athletes and scientists. Students are encouraged to participate in service, promote social justice, contemplate their individual spirituality and pursue lifelong learning.

Local women helping local women network learn and THRIVE!

Keynote Speaker:

Liz Ferro is an author whose works include Finish Line Feeling, Girls With Sole: A Girl Power Guide To Unleashing Your Inner Superhero, and Chameleon Girl. 

Her book, Finish Line Feeling, was chosen among thousands of entrants as a finalist for The Montaigne Medal by the Eric Hoffer Book Award.

As a child, Ferro experienced foster care and sexual abuse, but found solace in sports and fitness.

The empowerment gained from sports led her to find the non-profit organization Girls With Sole, which has received extensive national attention for its innovative and award-winning program curriculum.

She has been featured on the NBC TODAY Show, in SELF, Runner's World, and Family Circle Magazine. 

To date, Liz has completed 78 marathons, two 50K ultras, five Ironman triathlons, and countless road races and triathlons. She has completed a 26.2 Marathon in all 50 States, Africa, Antarctica, and on the Great Wall Of China.

Ferro graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a BA in Speech Communications and a concentration in Public Relations.

She lives in the Cleveland, Ohio area with her two rescue dogs, two rescue cats, two children, and her husband.
