Ottawa and Allegan Counties
I always loved running… it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.
What is SoleMates?
SoleMates is a charity running component of Girls on the Run. Adult athletes pursue individual goals such as running or completing a triathlon while raising money to support Girls on the Run. Athletes can participate in ANY event they wish to support Girls on the Run.
