Meet our official Non-Profit Partner

Our mission is to engage with athletes and racing events to support local communities by inspiring fundraising and service.

This year we are encouraging athletes to do more with their run and register for any Vacation Race as a Charity Bib runner! All donations will be distributed through a grant process at the end of the year to help address local issues identified by community partners in the area.
