SoleMates® is a team of individuals pursuing personal fitness goals while raising money for Girls on the Run of Puget Sound. Girls on the Run is a national 501(c)3 that empowers young girls in our community to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
GOTR is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory, noncompetitive 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
In 2013, our SoleMates® team will be training for the See Jane Run Half Marathon on July 14th. As I will be out of town, I will be participating in another Half the same weekend, and I hope to participate as a coach for GOTR this fall.
Please donate to show your support not only for me, but more importantly, a group comitted to instilling values in girls everywhere to celebrate their physical and emotional health!
