Joining Birmingham SoleMates is a great way for you to make a difference for the local Girls on the Run® Birmingham council. You can walk or run in any event of your choice and raise funds for our organization. With your support, the message of health and wellness that Girls on the Run brings will continue to spread and grow. This year we are anticipating giving over 300 girls scholarship funds to experience the life changing Girls on the Run program. We need your help to make this possible!
The Girls on the Run SoleMates® program provides a great opportunity to give girls an example of healthy living. By joining Girls on the Run SoleMates, you can play a vital role in ensuring the future success of Girls on the Run® programs that impact the lives of thousands of young women every year.
SoleMates is the young adult and adult charity running program of Girls on the Run®. We are male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or a race of any distance, to raise money for local Girls on the Run® councils. Just as SoleMates members are changed by their experience, Girls on the Run uses running to transform the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. Our ultimate goal is to raise enough money to reach every girl, and to educate and prepare her for a lifetime of self respect and healthy living.
