GOTR SoleMates

Use the power of running to make a difference in the life of a girl: become a SoleMate! You’ll be able to achieve your personal dream of running a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon, while making a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of girls across Caddo Parish.

Girls on the Run SoleMates® is the charity running component of Girls on the Run. SoleMates participants are men and women who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or triathlon, to raise money for Girls on the Run councils. These individuals use the power of running to make a difference for thousands of girls. The Girls on the Run SoleMates program raises funds for  our council and also increases visibility and awareness of the mission of Girls on the Run.

Girls on the Run SoleMates also has the potential to be a life-changing experience for the adult participants. The program provides a meaningful opportunity to share the values of the organization beyond our girls, making it a community effort!
