Girls With Sole Camp POWER

Summer Camp is a memorable and impactful experience in a young girl’s life. Girls With Sole’s Camp POWER explores the GWS POWER Principles of Perseverance, Optimism, Wisdom, Energy, and Resilience for campers age 11-13 and their teen mentors age 16-19.

Camp POWER will provide two meals for the girls, as well as, daily field trips and activities to nurture health and wellness, empowerment, self-esteem, team-building, and to explore new ideas while recognizing the POWER that each of them already has within themselves.

Camp POWER has reached max capacity for campers, but we still have two spots open for teen mentors.

On February 1, 2017 Girls With Sole Founder and CEO, Liz Ferro, will be the Keynote Speaker for her 3rd year in a row at this year’s Annual National Girls And Women In Sports Day Event held at Timmons Elementary School in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The theme is Expanding Opportunity and marks the school’s 20th Anniversary of the event.



Conquering the Wall (for the girls)

On May 20, 2017, Girls With Sole founder and CEO, Liz Ferro, will run what is widely known as the most challenging organized marathon in the world: The Great Wall Marathon . In hot and humid conditions, she will run a course that includes 5,164 steps of the Great Wall of China. It is such a brutal, unforgiving course that most people who attempt it don’t finish it.

But most people aren’t Liz Ferro.

So, why is she running the Great Wall Marathon? To show the world – and every forgotten girl within it – that no wall is too big to conquer. You can help by donating to Girls With Sole, so that more girls can receive the guidance, support, and access to fitness and sports that Girls With Sole provides.

It’s our goal to raise the much needed funding that will allow us to add the following to our existing programming:

-Training the Trainer
(GWS will provide operations manuals, training modules, personal training, and the program curriculum to people interested in running our invaluable programs for youth.)
– Girls With Sole Summer Day Camp
– Mother and Daughter Workshops

Saucony and Second Sole Rocky River are kindly sponsoring this campaign so that 100 percent of the proceeds raised will support Girls With Sole

Please help us reach our goals and meet the demand for GWS programs by donating today~

LULA 4 Girls With Sole – Sunday, October 2, 2016




Join Girls With Sole for our annual Lacing Up for a Lifetime of Achievement (LULA) race!

This year’s LULA race features a 4 mile run and 2 mile fun run / walk. This is a family-friendly race that will appeal to everyone, from children to competitive runners. Pre-race entertainment includes clowns, music, face-painting, and other fun activities!

The LULA race is Girls With Sole’s largest fundraiser and is the life-blood of the organization. All funds from the LULA 4 Girls With Sole race go directly toward bringing Girls With Sole programming to more young ladies throughout NE Ohio.

Girls With Sole has an innovative approach that teaches at-risk girls how to be empowered through physical activity, creative expression, and teamwork — nurturing a strong mind, body and soul. Through fitness based activities combined with guided discussions and self-esteem building art projects, Girls With Sole measurably improves fitness, self-awareness and communications skills, and empowers kids to create positive change in their lives and their communities


Use free fitness and wellness programs to empower the minds, bodies and souls of girls who are at-risk or have experienced abuse of any kind.

Our vision is a world where every girl thinks of herself as an athlete- and is inspired and nurtured in mind, body and soul- to achieve her fullest potential and inner most success.
