|Girls on the Run is an innovative health education and wellness program that combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk event with life-changing, self esteem enhancing lessons that encourage healthy habits and an active lifestyle in 8-12 year old girls. GOTR® uses the experience of training for and running a 5K race to show girls that anything is possible. |
SoleMates is the charity running “leg” of Girls on the Run. We are a team of female and male athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon, to raise money for our important programs. SoleMates provides a great opportunity to give girls an example of healthy living. By joining a team who supports GOTR®, you can play a vital role in ensuring the future success of GOTR® programs and have an impact on the lives of thousands of young women who will benefit from these programs in 2012.
Just as SoleMates members are changed by their experience, Girls on the Run uses running to transform the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
