This fun family event was created to raise awareness and support for the local non-profit organization NAWIC Pikes Peak Chapter 356. The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Pikes Peak Chapter 356 has been involved in the Colorado Springs community since 1996. The national symbol for NAWIC is the red rose, hence the Rebel Rose 5K. The organization’s core purpose is to “enhance the success of women in the construction industry” and offers many continuing education opportunities for women in the industry. NAWIC Pikes Peak Chapter 356 has been instrumental in supporting trades and construction education in the Colorado Springs area by organizing annual events such as the Block Kids Competition (Grades 1-6) and the CAD Competition (Grades 9-12). As a chapter we serve as volunteers for the annual Colorado Construction Career Days (Grades 11-12). Every year NAWIC 356 awards a scholarship to a young woman or man who is actively working towards a degree in the construction industry. Come out and bring the whole family to have fun and support women in the Construction Trades! Let’s make this event the catalyst for bringing women and families in the Construction industry together!
