Giving Back

By running in the Sugar Daddy Half Marathon you will be supporting the following charities. We have a soft spot for animals and kids in need. Help make a difference. A portion of the race proceeds will go to these charities, plus you can choose to make an additional donation when registering, of which 100% will go to the charity of your choice.
