“After watching the impact it has on the young girls involved I’ve decided to complete the Flying Pirate Half Marathon which raises funds for this program.

Girls on the Run honors its core values.”- Laura Estes

As a SoleMate I will be training for the OBX Flying Pirate Half Marathon in April, while also raising money to help fund this amazing program.” - Rosalina Leoncio
“Thank you for helping me give these girls a chance to get a head start on their future successes in life, sports and education! “One Person Can Make a Difference, and Everyone Should Try.” – John F. Kennedy - Mary McChesney

“I have been so inspired by Girls on the Run and I looking forward to this fundraising opportunity. Girls on the run is a non-profit organization that reaches out to girls in 3rd-8th grade. This organization strives to teach girls confidence through accomplishment all while learning to appreciate health and fitness.” -Wendy Robertson
“GOTR NEVER turns a girl away because she cannot afford the fee. Please help me raise money for the scholarship fund. This past spring 50% of the girls who participated were on a scholarship. The money raised stays here in Hampton Roads.” -Sarah Sawning
