Hear from the Team

Lucy, SoleMate
"I think being active and getting exercise is so important for young girls to grow their confidence and create meaningful connections. I am so grateful for all the life skills I learned from sports. I love the work that GOTR does since all girls deserve to have that experience as a part of growing up!"
Meghan, SoleMate
"I support Girls on the Run-Chicago because I struggled with self-confidence as a young girl, and still sometimes to this day (hello imposter syndrome!), and never had anyone to help guide me through that time in my life. GOTR-Chicago is making a huge impact on young girls and teaching them valuable skills that will help them later in life, and I want to give back and be a part of it."
Crystal, SoleMate
"I support Girls on the Run Chicago because it holds a special place in my heart and its a wonderful organization. They are giving back to the community by helping young girls succeed in life and take care of themselves as well."
