Girls on the Run - DC - Solemates!
Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. They inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run- DC was founded in 2006 and this fall we will serve our 15,000th girl across all eight wards of the city at over 145 locations.
Join the SoleMates adult charity athletes. Our SoleMates are individuals or teams who pursue personal goals, such as a running a marathon, half marathon, 10K, triathlon or other event, while raising money to help young girls in DC live their own dreams. This would be a great option to explore especially if you have a competition in mind, your volunteer work would be training and raising money along the way and at the end providing a young girl in DC the opportunity to participate in this program that allows them to feel empowered and develop healthy habits and friendships for life.
SoleMates can do any event of their choosing or use one of our charity bibs for large local races. Fundraising levels vary from $300 to $500 depending on if you're using one of our bibs. Girls on the Run provide a technical t-shirt, a fundraising guide, a training guide (for marathon / half distances), and a online platform to set up your fundraising page as well as tips along the way.
