What is SoleMates?
SoleMates is the charity running “leg” of GOTR and uses the power of running to make a difference in the lives of our girls. We are male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a half marathon, to raise money for our local Girls on the Run council. 100% of funds raised through our SoleMates participants stay in the Greenville area and are used to scholarship girls for our programs.
Athletes can participate in ANY event, but each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $262 within 30 days of completing their event. If you do not raise the $262 you will be personally responsible for this amount. Girls on the Run of Greenville Health System is a 501(c)3 organization and all individual donations are tax deductible.
Be a Girls on the Run SoleMate and raise money for our local Greenville Health System Children's Hopsital Council! Our goal for 2016-17 is to have 30+ runners raising $15,000.All running abilities welcome!
