Help us inspire more girls in the Willamette Valley!

See all of our 2017 SoleMates

SoleMates commit to raising a minimum of $250

Joining Girls on the Run SoleMates is a great way to make a difference for Girls on the Run Willamette Valley. You can walk, run or bike in any event of your choice and raise funds to support girls in our program. With your support, the message of health and wellness that Girls on the Run brings will continue to spread and grow!

Girls on the Run SoleMates is an adult charity running program for Girls on the Run. We are male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon, to raise money for local Girls on the Run councils. Just as Girls on the Run SoleMates 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 who needs assistance, and to educate and prepare her for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living!

Run for Free!  GOTR 5K

The Girls on the Run 5K is not just fun for the girls in our program!  Its the most positive, inspirational local event for runners/walkers of all fitness levels.  The event is open to all community runners.  All proceeds from event registrations go directly to making the GOTR program affordable for girls regardless of their family circumstances.  


 We love ALL of our SoleMates

SoleMate registration is not limited to any particular race.  Choose your own and let us know the date of your big event.  Some SoleMates choose local 5Ks and others take on the challenge of mountainous ultramarathons.  Set your own goal and we will support you all the way!
