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 is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

My name is Lisa Quintas. I started running in my late twenties as a way to increase my personal fitness.  I began with competing in 5K races and increased distance over time. In October, I will be running my fourth marathon.


What started as a way to increase my personal fitness quickly changed into something so much more. Today, I see running as not just a way of personal fitness but mental fitness, as well. I have also met the most wonderful people who I am happy to call my best friends. The time we spend together has made life better exponentially.


After a friend of mine asked me to help start fundraising for GOTR (Girls on the Run), I read through their mission statement. As soon as I heard about their desire to help girls take back their lives and define the future on their terms, I knew I was all in. It is an extreme honor to help girls get started at a young age to increase their fitness and confidence and meet lifelong friends in the process.


Any amount that you can pledge to help me reach my goal would be so much appreciated. Thank you in advance for helping me to raise money for this great cause!!


Hi everyone!

Last year I was able to raise $2000 in scholarships for girls to join Girls on the Run. That is the same as 12 girls joining this awesome program for free!

I think it is really important to always be kinder than necessary and always help those in need and Girls on the Run is So Much Fun!!

Will you please help me reach my goal again? I have until May 1st and it means so much to me to be able to do this!

Oh! and at the end I will run a 5K as my thank you to you all…

Go Team!!

I am an outdoor enthusiast and love exploring the great outdoors! I tried some new challenges in 2014.  I solo backpack a long distance trail in the High Sierras of California, The John Muir Trail.  I completed my first half marathon in October with my good friend Rebecca who is also on my Solemate team.  Rebecca is a cancer survivor and an inspiration and a catalyst for the challenges I completed last year.  I pushed harder, tried to be fearless and not give up just like Rebecca.
I am running my second half marathon but this time I am even more excited because I am raising money for Girls on The Run!  This program is a great opportunity to inspire girls to give it their all in the same way my friend Rebecca inspired me.  I am excited to be a part of this awesome Solemate team!

We are so excited that our spring season starts on Monday!  You should be hearing from your coaches this week with more details on practice!  If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
