With the Fall 5k, we're supporting three amazing charities: Feeding America, Common Ground Foundation, and Jumpstart. In the first Run Across America, we raised $164,500 together— we're excited to do even more this time. How are we supporting?
- Contribute during registration. As you register for the event, you can add an optional contribution to one of these organizations to your cart.
- We're proud to join you in support. Every dollar you contribute to these organizations through our website will be matched by Run Across America and our partners.
Feeding America works across the country to help solve hunger and are currently seeing unprecedented demand. With their scale and your help, every $1 donation creates 10 meals distributed through more than 200 member food banks. Learn more.

Does the registration fee go to charity?
For the Fall 5k, the registration fee is used to cover all of the costs of producing the event, from printing and shipping your merchandise to buying enough servers. It's also how we fund the matching gift program described above and free registration for teachers.
