Where passion meets professionalism.

We know that passion alone isn’t enough when it comes to creating strong nonprofits.

That’s why we work with aspiring and established leaders every day to help them build the skills and connections that can take their impact to the next level. With confident and prepared leaders, our nonprofits will be better equipped to create healthy, happy communities.

Nonprofits, schools and community groups: there is still time to sign up your teams. The earlier you register your team, the more time you’ll have to raise money. Register to run, donate and support your favorite cause! Go to the Race page.
