Most Marathoners Run for a Reason... what's yours?
The Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend has always welcomed any 501c3 non-profit charity partners to fundraise through our event using "crowdrise.com" . These local charities have raised tens of thousands of dollars for their individual causes. Crowdrise has recently merged with Go Fund Me Charity with a new look for 2020.
We encourage you to use our weekend of events to raise money for your 501c3 organization. Outside of a small service fee that goes to the 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 to your 501c3.
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.
