Run with us as a SoleMate!

Raise funds to impact girls while training for a race! Our SoleMates are a team of athletes of any gender, at all fitness levels, who pursue individual goals, such as completing a half marathon or 10k, to raise critically needed funds for the important character development programs we deliver to girls across the city.

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.
