So the big race is here and Sierra has trained really hard for GOTR 5k. She has put in a lot of miles since her great run at the Shamrock Shuffle. I'm very proud of her hard work.

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 scholarships 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!
