The Blue Ridge Marathon has been a community built and operated event since it’s inception in 2010. Since then, our race has continued to grow and positively impact the entire Roanoke Region, and now that we have more to give…we’re spreading the wealth!! The Blue Ridge Marathon is a 100% non-profit event and all proceeds go to benefit local charities with our main beneficiary being the Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Since our creation we have donated over $170,000 directly to charity and have had an economic impact in the region of $3.8 million.
The Blue Ridge Marathon offers 501(c)3 organizations, charities and civic groups the opportunity to use the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon as a fundraiser! We plan to give back by donating to groups willing to assist by providing 10, 15 or 25 volunteers. The more you recruit the more you earn (10 is the minimum).
In order to be considered for this opportunity you must fill out an application with details about your organization by the deadline December 18th, 2017 at 11:59pm. There are limited group incentive slots available (between 10-15 groups total depending on the number of volunteers each group is able to provide), and spaces will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. After the application deadline, selected organizations will be announced by January 8th, 2018. Please refrain from contacting the committee prior to that date. If you would like to be added to our list of volunteers and notified when the application for 2018 is live please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Emily Horne.
