What a day! Over 320 people joined the MEC North Vancouver Sole Girls Run!
We warmed-up, walked, ran, hopped, skipped, jumped, encouraged, cheered and smiled! WE EVEN Fought off the rain with our SOLE POWER!
Congratulations everyone for choosing to come out and have fun!
I can't even tell you how proud I am of all of our girls and our soleteers and even our Sole Parents who participated!!! There is something special about running your first 5km or 2nd, and having your parents be there running, or at the end supporting you. MAGIC ***~***~***~*~*~**
I am beyond honoured to lead Sole Girls, and as I read the feedback from parents, and soleteers, about the program and the run, I'm teary and emotional (cheezy but totally true) because I get to share these special moments and be a part of building girls' confidence and actually watch it happen. I also get to do this as part of a team and community of #allstars. There are no words on how cool that actually is.
I am SOLE Grateful for everyone who made goals this Fall to get outside, be active, be a role model for others and join us to empower girls to LOVE physical activity and give their HAPPY PACE a try
Special HUGE Thank you to @MEC_northvan Saskia for organizing the race series, and Glow Tween Spa and Party Boutique for the Glitter tattoos andPure Souls Media and the two SOLEMAMAS who volunteered to capture some special moments on camera for us!
And EVEN BIGGER THANK YOU for our sponsors this season The Runners' Den Eastside Fitness, Vega, Ener-C, Happy Water and to all of our Soleteers, Solemamas and Soledads who believe in us and help us create this community by showing up and being the mentors we need! without you there would be no us
