GOTR SoleMates

SoleMates is the fundraising program of Girls on the Run of Central Indiana. SoleMates use the power of running to achieve a personal goal fo competing in an athletic event (of their choosing) all while making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of girls across Boone, Clinton, Hamilton, Hancock and Tippecanoe Counties through their fundraising support!

 

What is a SoleMate?

SoleMates are fundraisers who pursue individual athletic goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon while raising money for Girls on the Run of Central Indiana during their training.

 

SoleMates choose the individual athletic event they wish to participate in; whether training for a 5k, marathon, or other competitive athletic event. (SoleMates identify the athletic event they are training for during the online registration process.)

 

SoleMates are males and females of all ages and abilities; from couch to 5k beginners to marathon runners.

 

SoleMates agree to raise a minimum of $262, but can set their own personal fundraising goal.

 

Why Fundraise for GOTR?

SoleMate fundraising dollars will allow Girls on the Run of Central Indiana to provide much needed scholarships to local girls who otherwise wouldn’t have the financial means to participate in the Girls on the Run program. The cost to support a girl in the program for one entire season (10 weeks) is $130 and SoleMates support ensures that no girl is turned away from the program for financial reasons.

 

Just as SoleMates are changed by their rewarding experience for positively impacting the lives of local girls through their fundraising efforts and completing a goal they set out to achieve, Girls on the Run uses running to transform the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. Our ultimate goal is to inspire all girls across Boone, Clinton, Hamilton, Hancock and Tippecanoe Counties to realize their limitless potential and boldly pursue their dreams!
