Come run with us

2014 trophy

Help us keep the trophy! For a fifth year in a row, the Club is taking part in the Santa to the Sea Charity Challenge. You can help out in one of two ways: Grab your sneakers and join us Dec. 13 for the half marathon and 5K race and/or help us raise money to win the challenge. Last year, our Club raised $6,300, the highest amount of all the participating charities in the Charity Challenge and we brought home the top charity trophy. Help us do even better this year!

Join a team! This year, the Club has designated team captains who will rally their teams to help raise money for the Club.

Team captains are in charge of recruiting participants who are willing and ready to make fundraising their top priority. Team members can include family, coworkers, friends and neighbors—anyone who wants to help and participate. It’s an opportunity to build Club involvement, improve health and have fun!

And the Club is offering plenty of incentives:

  • Raise $1,000 for BGCOP and we will pay your entry fee, and you will receive a dry-fit shirt and a water bottle; plus you are invited to attend a special recognition lunch at the Club.
  • Raise $500 for BGCOP and receive a $25 gift card to Big 5 Sporting Goods and a water bottle; plus you are invited to attend a special recognition lunch at the Club.
  • Raise $100 for BGCOP and receive two movie passes to a local theater.

Funds raised in the Charity Challenge benefit Club programming and activities for the more than 9,200 Club youth served each year at our 18 Club sites.

The Santa to the Sea race takes offers four types of races for people to walk or run: half marathon, two-person relay race, 5k run and a 1k fun run. The organization awards trophies to the team that raises the most money for its charity, and the charity that raises the most money overall.

Help us make the Santa to the Sea a successful event and help BGCOP at the same time!
