thirteen years strong thanks to a vision and long time supporters

In 2002 our chapter founder Shari Kunz read about the Girls on the Run program in Runner's World and decided she wanted to show what the power of running can bring to girls in the Wood River Valley. And thanks to donors and sponsors, many who have supported the program since it's inception, the program has served over 1300 girls in 12 years. From simple actions to immensely powerful gifts, find out how you can help us to continue to inspire our young women! 

Athletes using the power of their personal goals to make a difference

Solemates is the fundraising leg of Girls on the Run.  Male and female athletes pursue individual goals, such as running a marathon, completing a triathlon or cycling event, or even doing our first 5k or 10k, to raise money for Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley.  A team of 12 women will be choosing to sweat together, sleep in awkward places, and run under the starts of bear country this August at the Grand Teton Relay. Find out how you too can use the power of your racing to make an impact!

 

Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International,
which has a 
network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.
