Running for Charity

 

Interested in fund-raising for a charity? We offer many options to support worthy organizations throughout the country.  With a minimum donation of financial support (varies by charity), you'll receive a race entry to a Big Sur Marathon event and, in some cases, online training and/or other benefits from the charity.

Check out our new fundraiser page through Crowdrise to view our Crowdrise-listed charity partners (Children of Peru, Every Mother Counts, KultureCity, Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Move For Hunger, National Parkinson's Foundation, Save the Children, and Wildfire Hearts Hands Feet). 

Click on a link below to access each charities fundraising page. Non-Crowdrise charity partners include Alliance for a Healther Generation, Boomer Esiason Foundation, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, Inheritance of Hope, the RealBuzz charities, and Zero: The End of Prostate Cancer).

If you have already secured a marathon entry you can also use Crowdrise to set up your own fundraising page for the charity of your choice.

When considering the charity fundraising option, please keep in mind that it is unfair to commit if you have no real intention or realistic possibility of raising the agreed fundraising target. Don't be put off by the amount that has to be raised; fundraising isn't as difficult as you might expect, especially if you start early and get family and friends to help. If possible, look to a charity that has meaning for you, whether in memory of a family member, to support a friend, or because of your own personal experience.
