THE STORY:

GIRLS WITH SOLE wrote -

Trauma is the number one public health crisis in the nation. (Source: Centers for Disease Control)

The good news is that trauma is not destiny. 

In 2009 a woman in Cleveland, Ohio named Liz Ferro decided to share what she had learned as a survivor of rape and as an athlete with girls and young, at-risk women by launching the nonprofit organization, Girls With Sole. 

Our programs provide girls with the necessary tools for resilience, hope, healing and prevention by using a guided curriculum and numerous fitness and art activities that teach teamwork, leadership, and healthy habits to last a lifetime. 

Each participant also receives a copy of the book, Finish Line Feeling, free running shoes, sports bras, fitness journals and entry into a 5K or other races. 

We’re a grass-roots organization that serves Cuyahoga, Lorain and Stark Counties, and also has a Chapter in Charleston, South Carolina - but there are still so many girls who need our help that we can’t reach without this critical funding. 

Our goal is to raise $95,000 so that we can acquire an office space, pay two staff members, and expand programming for girls locally, while furthering our reach to other cities across the U.S. 

It is our aim to be a national organization by the year 2020.

Together we can serve more girls in need, and provide them with the opportunity to discover the health, healing, self-esteem, and sense of achievement they deserve and are capable of.

Together we can nurture and empower our future leaders.

Together we can say No More!
