THE STORY:

What a beautiful idea that by racing I can strengthen not only myself, but the lives of hundreds of Chicago girls. 

When such a fantastic opportunity presents itself, how can we say no? Only a few minutes of your day and $10 can make a world of difference to a girl not even 30 miles away. That's literally a run to starbucks. And because you gave up that one grande mocha frappe with almond milk, I'll run even further and even harder to help empower another girl. Many of us have been very lucky in our circumstances while also recognizing the troubles mentioned in the video (right). When many people come together so little can amount to so much. So, please, give up today's coffee or drivethru splurge or even join our team! It will benefit someone, someone's daughter/sister/friend, and make a meaningful impact in our world..

Girls on the Run - Chicago wrote -

Girls on the Run-Chicago is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to inspire girls to be healthy and confident. Using a fun, experience-based after-school curriculum which creatively integrates running, the innovative program combines training for a 5k event with interactive lessons that encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development.

In 2015, GOTRC will serve more than 9,000 girls throughout Chicagoland. Of those 9,000 girls approximately 85% will receive financial assistance to participate in our after-school programming.

GOTRC strongly believes that every girl should have the opportunity to grow up strong, healthy and confident, which is why it is their promise to never turn away a girl from their program because of her inability to pay the program fee.

The SoleMates on Team Girls on the Run help GOTRC keep this promise to their girls because all funds raised by the team go to underwrite scholarship funds so that every girl has the chance to learn that she can do anything she sets her mind to.

This year, we are challenging ourselves to complete in triathlons, 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, marathons, and everything in between so that we can raise important scholarship funds for girls to participate in this life-changing program. Please help us reach our goal!

Every donation has a huge impact.

  • $10 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
  • $44 will cover the cost of an average program scholarship for one girl
  • $59 will cover the cost of program t-shirts for 15 girls

  • $1,152 will cover the cost for one team of 8 girls to partcipate for one season
