|Welcome to the Boston Girls on the Run Solemates team page.
Girls on the Run combines training with for a 5k with self esteem building activities for girls ages 8 to 13. SoleMates are adult male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon to raise money for the local Girls on the Run of Boston.
SoleMates of Boston has teamed up with the folks at Walter's Run, a 5k in West Roxbury on December 12th. We are encouraging anyone who wants to run a 5k and raise money on behalf of the new Girls on the Run of Suffolk County (Boston), to run Walter's Race with us. The first season of girls will be running Walter's Race and look forward to having a team of SoleMates to encourage and motivate them through the event. Proceeds from Walter's Run benefit Globe Santa, YMCA Boston's Reach Out Campaign, and the Walter Burgess Scholarship Fund.
For athletes who would like to participate in a different event, either geographically closer, longer, shorter, etc, please feel free to do so. All SoleMate participants will be invited to a pasta dinner celebration with the girls in order to give everyone an opportunity to mingle and congratulate each other on their incredible accomplishments.
Please sign up to support this incredible program as it begins, and flourishes, in the Boston area or to support a registered participant (by selecting a Member page from the drop down menu above). Thank you in advance for all of your contributions!!
