Get your Organization Involved
in the 2013 Human Race!
Raise money for your organization by becoming a partner in the Human Race. Let's make this year the most impactful yet!
The Human Race is a collaborative community fundraiser that supports 501c3 organizations by raising funds to support their mission and raises awareness around volunteerism and service in the community. The Human Race is a proven fundraiser across the United States and continues to grow in popularity each year. In some communities the Human Race has raised over $1 million dollars. Funds can be raised for any 501c3 nonprofit organization, school, or church.
32 Organizations, over 500 runners, 200 volunteers all contributed to raise over $15,000 last year for the non-profit sector. This year we are looking to surpass those amounts by leaps in bounds! It all starts with your organization getting involved and getting involved early so your fundraising effort can have the biggest impact on the people you serve.
How it works
Organizations appoint a Race Coordinator who is in charge of promoting the Human Race in an outreach campaign to attract runners to particiapte on behalf of your organization. The runners in turn reach out to their network of friends, co-workers, family members, etc., and collect donations on behalf of the organization with a promise to run in the Human Race. It is that simple! Around 93% of the money collected goes straight to the organization that it was collected on behalf of with around 6.5% going for administrative costs in collecting and distributing bi-weekly checks to the organizations through Active.com.
