The Los Angeles Marathon Nonprofit Partnership Program
The Los Angeles Marathon Nonprofit Partnership program is an opportunity for nonprofits to utilize the Los Angeles Marathon, Charity Challenge Half Marathon and LA Big 5K as a platform for creating awareness about their mission and raising needed funds for their organization.
It is also much more than that. Running or walking a marathon, half marathon or 5K is a memorable journey that can be so much more impactful when doing it for a charity. Our nonprofit partners provide a purpose for people to cross the finish line -- for the first time or their 50th -- and make a direct impact on people’s lives.
Joining the Nonprofit Partnership Program allows you to be a part of a community of nonprofits who have come together to make a difference in a fun, healthy and supportive way. Working together, our partners make this program a success for not only their organizations, but the people participating in the events and standing on the side cheering them on.
Our partners raised over $2.5M for their causes in 2022 and over $62M in the history of the program.
