Most Marathoners Run for a Reason... what's yours?
For 19 years, The Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend has welcomed additional charity partners to fundraise through our event. As the weekend has grown and evolved over the last few years, we have seen approximately $40,000 fundraised through Crowdrise since 2013! 2020 has a new look. Crowdrise has merged with Go Fund Me Charity to give us the same fundraising experience.
We want you to use our event to raise money for your organization. Outside of a small percentage that goes to our fundraising platform, Go Fund Me Charity, every dollar raised goes directly to your charity.
To start a team for your organization, click "Join" and then "Create your own Team". To join an existing team, click "Join" and then "Join a Team". All teams must be registered 501(c)(3). Once registered, each team member will have a direct link to send to friends and family for fundraising.
This is how it works:
- Your charity recruits runners and walkers to join your team and participate in any of our events.
- Team members register at www.mercedesmarathon.com . The registration fee covers the operating budget of the race and we do ALL the race work.
- The best part is that it costs nothing to you! Just invest a little time and effort to recruit team members that find your cause near & dear to their hearts and that will want to raise money for you!
- The money raised by your fundraising team on charity.gofundme.com goes directly into your pocket book.
We hope you consider using The Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend as your running fundraiser and skip all the costs involved with putting on your own event.
