Human Race is a 5K Walk or Timed Run that takes place on May 4, 2019 starting at Alex R Thomas Plaza in downtown Ukiah at 9 am. Early registration starts at 8am. The event is a collaborative community fundraiser that supports charities by raising funds and building community awareness. Not only am I running in the event, I invite you to join my team! I will also have a booth at the Start/Finish if you would like to join us after the race. (See the course map here.)
Prior to race day, local businesses and organizations form teams (join my team!) and collect donations in support of their charity. A small percentage of each team’s total goes to NCO to cover the cost of hosting the event.
On race day, the teams show up, many in outrageous costumes, to either walk or run the 5k that winds through the streets of Ukiah.
The Human Race is a proven fundraiser across the United States and continues to grow in popularity each year. It’s a fun and effective way to raise money for our local non-profits and support our community.
The benefits for both teams and non-profits include:
- Raise money to support your charity without all the headache of planning and implementing an event. NCO does all that for you!
- Promote your organization in a fun and healthy way.
- Promotes the Power of WE – we are stronger together through collaboration.
- An opportunity to outreach to the community and reach new volunteers and supporters.
The last few years have included cut backs in vital services throughout the County. There are dozens of Mendocino County non-profits that can use your support. These amazing charities are the backbone for many local families and our entire community. All of us are grateful for the fine work of these tireless organizations.
