Run for Girls Unite Virtual 5K

Girls Unite is 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.  

Help keep Girls Unite healthy during the COVID19 pandemic by participating in the 2020 Run for Girls Unite Virtual 5K. Run, bike, walk or skip…  Join us!

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.
