The Idea Behind the Human Race
Raise money for your favorite 501(c)3 Nonprofit!
The Human Race 2-mile Fun Run and Walk and 5K Run is a collaborative community fundraiser that supports 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations (government agencies, community based, faith-based and schools). It is designed to raise awareness about volunteerism and service to the community. It brings together the best of Fresno's healthy activities for both young and old; including art, music, food, and service and celebration of Fresno's human spirit. Businesses may also support organizations by recruiting runners and walkers and raising funds for the favorite organization!
