Description

The Run for Girls Unite Virtual 5K is raising money for Girls Unite, a San Francisco-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to providing an empowering environment for young female athletes, increasing leadership and visibility of women in soccer, and making club soccer accessible to all girls in our region.  

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, regular Girls Unite programming has been cancelled, delayed and placed in uncertainty.  The inability to run summer soccer and camp programs significantly impacts Girls Unite funding sources, and threatens the organization's ability to continue fulfilling its mission.

 

100% of your registration fee supports:

  1. Sustaining & growing the Girls Unite financial assistance program which covers coaching, administrative, and league expenses for players and teams without the resources to otherwise play club soccer in a high-cost city like San Francisco.
  2. Hiring, mentoring & licensing female head coaches and junior coaches for the Fall 2020 season: nurturing new and experienced coaches, advancing their credentials and pushing them into next levels of leadership in soccer.
  3. Maintaining core Girls Unite staff & coaches essential to supporting a basic level of operation.

Our #RunForGirlsUnite 5K is almost here!. We appreciate the enthusiasm and support we have received. Now, for every race registration made June 1-June 7, a donation will be made to Equal Justice Initiative https://eji.org/ a Black-led non-profit working to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality.  #BlackChildrenMatter  #BlackLivesMatter
