Girls on the Run - Chicago's Fundraiser:

SoleMates: Choose Your Own Event

THE STORY:

Did you know that more than 75% of Girls on the Run participants request scholarship funding to be able to participate in our program and because of the SoleMates team GOTR has never needed to say no?

This year we are challenging ourselves to complete an endurance event and raise scholarship funds so that any girl can participate in this life-changing program.

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. 

Last season the SoleMates team raised just under $280,000 and this year our goal is even bigger: $350,000. Help us reach our goal so that we can continue to inspire girls across Chicagoland to be joyful, healthy and confident!

 

Every donation has a huge impact!

$5 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
$47 covers the cost of the average program scholarship 
$141 covers the cost for one girl to participate in GOTRC for one season
