1. Find Your Organization of Choice- using either the "Find an Organization" search bar at the top of the page, or the unique link given to you by the organization you wish to support. If you don't know which organization you'd like to support, use the "Discover Nonprofits" menu at the top left of this page. With so many fantastic organizations in the race, we're confident you'll find a perfect match!

2. Create Your Fundraising Page- Once you've found your organization, choose either the fundraise as an individual or fundraise as a group button on the right side of their page. Follow the instructions to complete your profile. PLEASE NOTE: Team Captains whose members will create individual pages, register as an individual.

3. Fundraise-Fundraising will open on March 28th. Reach out to your network of friends, family, and collegues to ask for their support. Utilize social media, email, phone calls, letters, or ask in person. Get creative, and have fun with it!

Individually we are drop, but together we are an ocean...

The Santa Cruz County Human Race is a truly unique and special community event drawing thousands of donors and participants each year. Our registered non-profits, schools, and community groups are hard at work everyday transforming lives, supporting neighborhoods, and creating a happier healthy place to live. 

You have the opportunity to stand beside them to make a beautiful community statement- We are a powerful force for good.

Together we bring a stronger voice and more visibility to the community table. Your success as a fundraiser will not only lift up the causes you care about, but it will support the larger community. 

Our Human Race Team is prepared to help you get to your fundraising finish line and we look forward to working with you.



If you'd like to support and organization, but aren't able to become a fundraiser, you may show your support by making a one time donation. Starting on March 28th you can make a secure donation without creating a fundraising page.


Volunteers are essential for hosting the Human Race and providing this opportunity to all of the participating organizations. If you'd like to donate your time and join our team of 300 amazing volunteers, we'd love to talk to you. The Human Race is a great volunteer opportunity for people of all ages, and can be a fun bonding experience for your family, club, or business.
