Cause + Event Portland:  September 13, 2014

Are you a nonprofit interested in partnering with Cause + Event Portland?  
We have many ways to get nonprofits involved in our event.  Would you like to raise money for your organization?  Field a team or five or more runners and be the first to register and ensure your spot in the race.  We'll donate $15 for each 5K/10K runner that selects you, and $30 for each half marathon runner that choose you.

Just register one runner and apply through our google form (link provided at registration) to have your cause added to our drop down menu.

DEADLINE FOR REGISTERING NEW CAUSES: September 1, 2014 11:59PM PST OR when our race sells out, whichever comes first.  After the deadline we cannot add any additional causes to the event for 2014.

NOTE: You must register at least one paid runner in order to be added to our database.

There's an extra incentive to form a big team: the team with the most participants on race day will receive another $250 donation to their cause!  After all, it's more fun to run with friends!

Think you might want to raise some more money for your cause?  Have your runner or team of runners start a pledge-gathering page for the event.  This year your fundraising page is integrated with our registration system.  So easy!

Not sure you can gather a team of runners?  No problem, we've got other options:


Want a booth at our race day expo? Well, simply loan us 5 or more volunteers to assist with packet pick up or race day logistics and we'll give you a booth at the race to promote your nonprofit and raise awareness for your mission. With any luck you might even recruit some great volunteers or donations for your organization.  Email us if you'd like to provide us with volunteers!  This opportunity is limited to the first five nonprofits to register 5 or more volunteers.

Don't want a booth at the expo? No problem, loan us 10 or more volunteers for packet pick up or race day logistics and we'll provide you with a donation $100. Act fast, due to budgetary restrictions we will limit the number of organizations to FIVE TOTAL for this opportunity.  Email us if you'd like to be considered for this opportunity, first come, first served!
