GOTR SoleMates

A great way to support Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee is to participate in an athletic event and be a fundraiser. What a better way to show our support to local area girls than to train for and participate in an athletic event ourselves!  By joining Girls on the Run SoleMates, you play a vital role in ensuring the future success of Girls on the Run® programs that impact the lives of hundreds of young women throughout Southeast Tennessee every year.

What is SoleMates?

SoleMates is a fundraising program of Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee. SoleMates are male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon or cycling event, to raise money for the Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee. You choose the event, ANY event will do! 

Fundraising Minimums and Support

Becoming a SoleMate is easy!  Online registration only costs $25 (this cannot be applied to your fundraising).  We ask that you raise a minimum of $250 and will support you every step of the way with an effortless fundraising web page, fundraising ideas, tips and support.  SoleMates commit to raising a minimum of $250 on or before 30 days after completing their race. We will pay your race entry fee and supply you with GOTR goodies as well as training!

It’s Easy to Get Started!

Once you join SoleMates through our easy online registration, you’ll receive information to set up your website and you’ll be on your way to achieving your goals!  Please note that registration for SoleMates does not include registration to the actual race you select.  We will cover your race entry fee, so be sure to notify us so we can reimburse you!

Your Fundraising Dollars Provide Scholarships

Girls on the Run programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. Your fundraising dollars will allow Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee to provide scholarships.  $250 will support 4 girls for an entire Girls on the Run season and this support ensures that no girl is ever turned away for financial reasons.

Don’t forget to ask if your or your donors’ employers match charitable contributions!  Donations made to GOTRSETN are tax deductible, as we are a 501c3 non profit organization (45-3640375).

Still Have Questions?

We look forward to having you as a SoleMate.  If you have more questions, please contact Merica Stum, Council Director, at merica.stum@girlsontherun.org
