Become a Benefactor

California Runners is a nonprofit organization created to unify California’s running community and educate the general public on the health benefits of running, walking, and physical activity, while concurrently providing a variety of related charitable services beneficial to the public interest. None of this is possible without your generosity. Please take a moment to make a donation to our organization.

A donation of just $5 will pay the liability insurance for 3 middle school students that want to join their local team.
