Official Charity Program

The Official Charity Program provides runners with the chance to make their participation mean a little bit more, as they help improve the lives of women and children in our area.

As the first all-women’s sporting event in New England, we believe in our philanthropic responsibility to support the communities of women which have supported us for more than 40 years. Through our Official Charity Program, we’ve selected a few groups helping women and runners to showcase, promote, and facilitate financial contributions from our participants.
