The Cascade Relays Foundation supports local non-profits, school groups, and community organizations in the communities our events travel through. Cascade Relays has directly donated over $300,000 to local nonprofits and community groups since its founding in 2008. In 2017, The Cascade Relays Foundation granted $63,000 to partnering charities.
The Foundation allows Cascade Relays to continue supporting nonprofits in the communities along its Cascade Lakes Relays, Bend Beer Chase, Centennial Beer Chase, and San Diego Beer Chase course routes. Cascade Relays also provides pro-bono support and free equipment for several local fundraising races throughout the year, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend Thanksgiving Run/Walk and The Ronald McDonald House Striped Sock Walk.
