Fundraise for Charity and Make Your Miles Go Further

Berkeley Half Marathon has teamed up with CrowdRise to help our runners make their miles go further by fundraising for charity. Choose to run for free for the Berkeley Half Marathon’s official charity, Berkeley Public Schools Fund, or simply fundraise for a cause that you’re most passionate about. Whether you’re a charity looking to set up a team or a runner looking to raise money for your favorite cause, you can make a difference by choosing to fundraise for charity.

Donate Your Miles: Support Berkeley Public Schools Fund, our Official Charity, and make a donation for every mile you ran. It takes less than two minutes and makes your miles even more meaningful. We are well on our way to reaching our 2016 goal and need your help to make a bigger-than-ever impact in our community.

  • Tips for Fundraising Success
    After you’ve started your fundraiser and personalized it with pics, video, and a compelling story, email your page’s link to everyone you know. If you ask people to support you, they will. Ask twice if you have to. Be relentless in your making your miles count.

    Email is the most effective way to spread the word, but definitely share your cause through all your social networks, too. Use the ‘Manage Campaign’ tab to thank your donors and keep your supporters excited.

    When you’re ready to start raising money for your cause, be the first to make a donation to your cause. When your friends see that you’ve donated, they’ll be compelled to give, too.
