the charity running program of GOTR!
What is the Girls on the Run of Orlando SoleMate Program?
SoleMates is the charity running “leg” of Girls on the Run® and uses the power of running to make a difference for girls in Orlando. Athletes choose to participate in any running, walking, cycling, swimming, or multi-sport event and fundraise through a personal online portal for Girls on the Run® of Orlando programs.
SoleMates fundraising provides program scholarships to local girls who could not otherwise participate in this life-changing program.
“What an enlightening experience– from making the commitment to training, it has been eye opening into the things we really can achieve. Thank you so much for this opportunity to raise funds and help those girls that need financial assistance, AND for this grueling run.” – Solemate Krista Lang

Why is the minimum fundraising goal $365?
The minimum amount enables Girls on the Run® of Orlando to provide a scholarship for at least two girl’s for an entire season. By registering for our charity running program, the participant agrees to raise a minimum of $365 for GOTR Orlando by 30 days after your race.
What if I don’t raise the minimum $365?
Each SoleMate is responsible for raising the minimum amount by 30 days after your race. If you have not raised those funds, your credit card on file will be charged the difference to equal the $365 in fundraising.
