Get Involved

Become a Coach

Coaching a Girls on the Run or Girls on Heart and Sole is an opportunity to do something great for the girls in your community! Our coaches are parents, teachers, and community members who volunteer their time twice each week throughout the 10-week season and at the Girls on the Run 5K, the culminating event for our program participants.

Visit our Become a Coach page for more information or contact Program Manager Denise Pang.

Become a SoleMates Charity Athlete

Use the power of running (or any sport you love!) to make a difference in a girl's life by raising money for Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley while training for and completing an event of your choice!

Visit our Become a SoleMate page for more information or contact Fundraising Coordinator Carol Snell.

Become a 5K Race Day Volunteer

Make a Donation to Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run programs are funded in part by program registration fees, but we rely on sponsorship, grants and donations to keep our fees as low as possible for ALL girls and to offer scholarships to girls in need. We are a non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible. We appreciate your support! Every donation of any size makes a difference!
