You will receive the support of our SoleMates Committee, staff, and community partners!

Currently, more than 80% of the girls in our program receive financial assistance to participant–and as a SoleMate, you make this possible. Funds raised by SoleMates allow these girls the opportunity to participate in our life-changing program—empowering them to be confident, healthy, and joyful. Your support will help us maintain our commitment to serve all girls, regardless of financial need.

Hear from our SoleMates!

"Being a SoleMate for the NYC marathon was an amazing experience! From the beginning, Girls on the Run supported us and helped us in any way and it made me excited to fundraise for such an amazing cause. Working towards something and training for the marathon gave me such a strong purpose over the past few months and I loved the commitment of it. Running the marathon was an experience I'll never forget!"
"When I saw GOTR mission, it just clicked and gave me the inner confidence that I could maybe run a marathon again… and if I can’t do it for myself, I felt I could power through with GOTR mission in my heart… and so I did."
