About Olivia Grev
Olivia is a business and tech consultant, alpine skier, and world traveler who lives in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Olivia’s love for the outdoors was sparked at a young age on an outdoor leadership program in the Colorado Rockies. Now Olivia wants to pass on these same types of opportunities to young women across the country.
Running to Get Girls Outside
A seasoned runner of short and long distance races, Olivia is recovering from a recent hip injury and getting back to the outdoor activities she loves including running. This fall, Olivia will challenge herself with her first ‘post-surgery’ half marathon race. This time around, Olivia is racing for a purpose – she is raising support for programs that expand outdoor opportunities for young women. Fundraising goal: $2000.
Why Get Out and Give Back?
“I want other young females to get the same life lessons I did out of the outdoors – those especially around confidence and perseverance. I’m entering a phase of life where now it is possible for me to give back, and I want to be an example to young women.”
