Door County Half Marathon Seeks Runners for Charities

There’s still time to run for a reason at the 2016 Door County Half Marathon and Nicolet Bay 5k.

“We’re striving to help our runners raise more than $25,000 for charity in this year’s Run For A Cause program,” said race founder David Eliot. “The sooner you sign up, the sooner we can help promote your effort and spread the word about the charity you’re running for.”

The program provides runners with a free registration to the May 7, 2016 race in Peninsula State Park to any runner who raises at least $250 for local charities.

This year the program will surpass the $100,000 mark for dollars raised. Since launching the program in 2010, 73 different nonprofits have received donations through the program.

“We’re proud to help runners use the race as a catalyst to raise funds for the charities that make Door County the special place that it is,” said Eliot. “It really is a special feeling when you see our Run For A Cause runners together before the race for their photo each year, and you know that their work is helping so many deserving organizations and individuals.”

Run For A Cause registration is open now. For pledge sheets or more information email Registration Director Jordan Burress at [email protected] or call her at 920.421.4680.
