Be a Star For Your Community

March 26-May 12, 2018

With over $400,000 raised last year, we are ready to set the bar even higher. We are now up and running for 2018  and look forward to partnering with our local schools, non-profits, community groups and business partners to make this our best year yet.

Are you ready to be a star for your community? Then join us. We provide free tools, individualized support and fundraising expertise so you can effectively raise funds for the causes you care about.

We are prepped and ready to get you and your team of fundraisers to that fundraising finish line.

What is the Human Race?

 The Human Race is a nationwide community fundraising event for nonprofit organizations, schools, and faith based organizations. The Santa Cruz County Race features a 6 week fundraising campaign that culminates in a five-mile walk and fun run along beautiful West Cliff Drive, a complimentary breakfast, music along the course, a costume contest, a BBQ lunch and family friendly festivities at the finish line.

Each year more than 120 teams reach out to the community to ask for support for the causes they champion. Together we rally more than 10,000 donors and 1500 participants on the day of the race.

Why Join the Human Race?

A fun, fast & easy way to raise money for your nonprofit, school, or agency.

It is the largest collaborative community fundraiser in Santa Cruz County, having raised over $1 million for community groups in the past 5 years. Participating nonprofits, schools, and churches raise funds to help meet the educational, environmental, social, and creative needs of our community.

To help agencies reach this goal, we provide a top of the line fundraising website and $58,000 in prizes and matching funds.
