Give More. Grant Wishes. Make Magic

The wand has been waved and 130 Human Race Teams have hit the pavement ready to reach their goal!

Are you ready to give? Use the donation form at the bottom of this page to make a quick, easy, secure, donation to one or more organizations.

Over the next six weeks, nonprofits, schools, faith-based groups, and the dedicated folks who support them will Give More, Grant Wishes, and Make Magic as they collectively step out to ask the community for financial support. 

After 6 weeks of fundraising, everyone is invited to join us on Saturday May 13th as we celebrate our community's generosity with games, entertainment, food, and a beautiful walk down West Cliff Drive.

Can't make it to the race? You can still step up for the causes you care about by making a donation. With so many deserving non-profits, schools, and community groups to choose from, we know you will find a team that inspires you.
