Sunday May 24th, the Sole Girls will be hosting the first annual Sole Awesome 5km Fun Run at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby. Each kilometer will have an activity or obstacle course - hopscotch, high fives, 3 legged races, dance, and more. Proceeds from tickets and donations will support the Sole Girls Scholarship Fund and the Amanda Todd Legacy Foundation.
Sole Girls focus on self-esteem and mental health of girls in a non-competitive community. They celebrate empowering girls (ages 8-12) through Sole Awesome's core values - support, open-minded, love & listening, and encourage/enthusiasm. In their 9 week programs girls learn about goal setting, healthy living habits, dealing with peer challenges, anxiety, and self-doubt.
"The mission of Sole Girls is to inspire and build a world of confident, active girls who are supportive, inclusive leaders who embrace their differences and who see physical activity as something positive for their mental health."
