Horizon Fitness is sponsoring the Girls on the Run SoleMates program, the adult charity running leg of Girls on the Run (GOTR). Male and female athletes alike, who pursue individual goals such as running a marathon or participating in a triathlon, can sign up to raise money for local GOTR councils.
Those signing up to participate in SoleMates have a chance to win a Horizon T92 Treadmill (MSRP $1,099.99). Horizon Fitness has also set up an online coupon code that gives Girls on the Run International 15% of the Horizon treadmill purchase when the code is used. The T90 Treadmill is excluded.
Girls on the Run is a 12-week after-school program, offered each spring and fall, helps 8- to 12-year-old girls get to know themselves and understand their place and value in the community by teaching a curriculum that combines training for a 5K run/walk event with self-esteem enhancing workouts that encourage emotional, social, and physical development. What started in 1996 with 13 participating girls has grown to over 150 councils across 43 states, serving over 52,000 girls each year.
