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 to receive guaranteed entries into the race that they can use for fundraising purposes.

To join a team, please reach out to the organization using the Connect buttons below.
