Welcome to Girls on the Run of Kaufman!
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
Girls on the Run of Kaufman is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

SoleMates is the adult charity running branch of Girls on the Run® (GOTR).
We are male and female athletes who pursue individual goals, such as running 5K's, 10K's or even a marathon or participating in a triathlon,
to raise money for local GOTR councils. This program provides a great opportunity to give girls an example of healthy living.
