Who Are SoleMates?
We believe everyone benefits when we support our kids.
So, Fleet Feet partnered with Girls on the Run to inspire more runners through the SoleMates program. As the national partner of SoleMates, Fleet Feet helps support an inspired and driven community made up of passionate people raising money for Girls on the Run while completing a physical challenge.
A SoleMate has two purposes:
Commit to a fitness-related goal - anything from a 5k to an ultramarathon
Raise funds, awareness and support for Girls on the Run by sharing progress towards your goal with your friends, family and community
SoleMates don't need to be star athletes or medal-winners - they only need to be champions for the girls in the communities.
Why Girls on the Run?
Fleet Feet and Girls on the Run believe in the same thing: the power of running.
Because of our shared belief, Fleet Feet Montclair and our partner stores around the country are working with local Girls on the Run councils to forge meaningful relationships centered around in-store events, training programs and exclusive products. Our local council is GIRLS on the Run New Jersey East.
