The Columbus Running Company Charity Fund is a 501c3 organization evolved from our mission to benefit
both the running and local communities. The CRC volunteers its time to help local charities and clubs
put on quality road races with both the athlete and charity in mind. Free services we provide are
timing, course design, logistics, registration, and more.
Most of the events benefit an already existing 501c3 organization, such as the March of Dimes. A few events, such as the Megan's Miles, use the CRC Charity Fund to raise money for a designated charity- in this case Nationwide Childrens Hospital. One or two events per year will raise money for the Charity Fund itself. Money going directly into the Fund will be used to provide support to programs such as our youth Grasshoppers Running Club, or equipment and the means to make current events bigger and better in the future.
Working with these events is a privilege, and it is our goal to bring to these events a unique experience for you, the participant. Not only do we want your money going directly to the cause, we want you to have a great running experience to go with it. Unfortunately we only have a limited amount of events we are able to volunteer our CRCCF services for. If our Charity Fund calendar is already full, please consider hiring our general timing company. You'll find our pricing great and service excellent. We are sure we can benefit your organization and your upcoming event!
