The Columbus Running Company Charity Fund and Columbus Clippers are teaming up to bring a new and unique event to downtown Columbus. We’re working with a number of local charitable organizations and the Columbus Clippers to put on a fun community event that will showcase the generosity and caring of Columbus.

How does it work?

Local charities and non-profits will work with the Generosity Columbus 5K team to get their organization signed up. Once they’re registered, the organization’s name will be available for participants to choose when registering. All proceeds from the event will be going to the registered organizations. When participants select a charity during the registration process, 100% of the proceeds from their registration fee will go toward the charity of their choice. If a participant does not select a specific charity from the list, their proceeds will be distributed evenly among all registered charities.

I’m part of a local charity or non-profit and interested in participating, what do I need to do?
