Human Race Online Giving Campaign- Now Through May 9th, 2020

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 Human Race is the perfect picture of the world we believe in– big-hearted, joyful, and generous– Thanks to people like you.

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 now through May 9.

We are facing unprecedented times, but we can choose to face this TOGETHER and you can make the crucial difference for our local nonprofits who meet the needs of our community every day.

We invite you to make a difference from home through the Human Race Online Giving Campaign. Join us and raise much-needed funds for those who need it most. Fundraise for or donate to your favorite cause.

With 80 + participating teams to choose from, we know you will find the perfect match.

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.
