SoleMates is the charity running component of Girls on the Run. SoleMates are individuals who complete athletic events while raising money for Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley. The funds raised help more girls participate in GOTR and help us provide scholarships to girls in need. Each SoleMate commits to a $250 minimum fundraising goal and makes the first $25 donation to their goal through the registration process.
Individuals may register and raise funds as a SoleMate for ANY race of ANY distance. The Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley staff will be supporting SoleMates and/or participating in the following events:-The Palo Alto Athleta Esprit de She 5K at 6:30 pm on Thursday, August 1st, 2013.-The Nike Women's Marathon (HALF Marathon) on October 20, 2013.-The Nike Women's Marathon (FULL Marathon) on October 20, 2013.Please note that the $25 fee to register as a GOTRSV SoleMate counts as the first $25 donation toward your fundraising goal. (Your $25 donation will show up on your fundraising page after the first online donation is made to you through your fundraising page.) Each SoleMates commits to a $250 minimum fundraising goal, which must be met within 30 days of your race.To register as a SoleMate, you will need to log in to Active using your Active username and password.
