Human Race

Human Race Online Giving Campaign Mar. 25-May 9

While the celebration scheduled for May 9th will not cap off our online giving campaign this, we know that the generosity of our community will endure.

The most vital piece of the Human Race is the six week online giving campaign. More than 80% of funds donated last year were raised online.  Our platform provides the opportunity for virtual solidarity & support and we are full steam ahead with the online portion of the race happening March 25 -May 9.

As we practice social distancing in the coming month, we know that there are challenges ahead. Our organizations may struggle to gain new volunteers, access donated goods, and maintain the in-person connections that are vital to our community well-being. The Human Race as a virtual campaign can play a crucial role in helping to counteract some of these challenges.

We are committed to preparing for options while keeping our community safe, healthy, and connected. We intend to follow whatever recommendations are provided by our County Health Department and in the meantime, we will use our best in the field online tools to virtually walk with you every step of the way as you meet your fundraising goals.

What is the Human Race?

 The Human Race is a nationwide community giving campaign for nonprofit organizations, schools, and faith-based organizations. The Santa Cruz County Race features a 6-week online fundraising campaign that traditionally culminates in a celebratory five-mile walk and fun run along beautiful West Cliff Drive.

The Human Race, as known in the past is happening a bit differently this year, but we are in full support of agencies, and we believe the Human Race as an online fundraiser is a an excellent solution for fundraising in today's shift to online activities.
