This Saturday, Girls on the Run took over FlyWheel Astor place to fundraise for our NYC Marathon SoleMates. The studio was packed with friends and family for an energetic ride with our instructor, Nicole.
The music was bumping and our hearts were pumping, all in support of our SoleMates as they head into the final training weeks for the marathon. Afterward, we enjoyed some tasty chia bars from Health Warrior.
TCS New York City Marathon SoleMates raise at least $3,000 each, allowing Girls on the Run NYC to expand our scholarship sites and reach more girls. Currently, more than 60% of the girls in our program come from low-income communities. Funds raised by SoleMates allow these girls scholarship and subsidy support to participate in our life-changing program, empowering them to be confident, healthy and joyful.
