Charity Athletes Team/SoleMates

Join Team Girls on the Run in 2017!

Whether it is your first race, 
your second, or your 100th, 
Team Girls on the Run will help you 
cross the finish while you help 
thousands of girls cross theirs.

More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. In 2016, our team raised nearly $400,000 in scholarships, helping nearly 2,500 girls participate in the program. In 2017, we are on track to serve 12,000 girls across Chicagoland. Join the team that helps make it all happen!
