Your support as a SoleMate by fundraising is a tremendous gift to our organization and girls in New York City, allowing us 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 allows these girls scholarship and subsidy support to participate in our life-changing program, empowering them to be confident, healthy and joyful. Your support will help Girls on the Run NYC maintain our commitment to serve all girls, regardless of financial need.
