The impact of Sole Sisters

As your Race Director, I get to do some pretty fun things. Like last week, I was able to have coffee with the folks that operate the CIBC Run for the Cure in Halifax, the Terry Fox Foundation, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada and Team Diabetes (actually that coffee date is later this summer).

At those meetings Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series was able to donate $3,500 to those charities and that was above fully funding Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club. It’s your Sole Sisters race fee that funds the amazing program called Girls Gone Gazelle and allows it to be totally FREE to the participants.   There are enough barriers to entry when it comes to getting girls active so we do not want cost to ever be one too.

Don’t you wish there had been a club like Girls Gone Gazelle when you were younger?

And since sadly most of us have been touched by Cancer or Diabetes it’s also really nice to be able to contribute to these worthy organizations too.

We are so pleased to be able to give back to the community but, there is even more that Sole Sisters Women’s Race does. Over the years, we’ve never even thought to calculate the races impact until the City did it for us this year. It’s pretty unbelievable to think that the economic activity of our June Sole Sisters 5K to the province has been calculated at $1,197,738.00 and $814,854.00 for Dartmouth alone. Wow!

So when we way that Sole Sisters Women’s Race Series is much more than “just a 5K… or just a Quarter Marathon or just a Half Marathon” you totally get the why of that!

And by the way it IS a pretty amazing race too! So don’t miss out on joining us again on October 1, 2017 while registration is still open!
