Charities & Donations

Help a charity and you can run.

Thanks to the Friends of the Spring Lake Five, LLC, and Spring Lake 5 Mile Run, a limited number of entries are donated to and available through charitable organizations.

In 2018, our Charity Partners were able to raise over $115,000 for their individual causes, with $1,038,000 raised since the inception of the Charity Partner Program in 2007.

We ask that runners contact the charities directly – runners are asked to raise a set amount in pledges for the charity. All the money raised will be given to the charity; checks are written directly and mailed directly to the charity, not through the Spring Lake 5 Mile Run.
