Both Kari and Max are ingrained in serving our Central Oregon community through volunteering and event management. One of our biggest goals is to make sure that we are benefiting the youth and non-profits of the community we call home. In its first three years, the Bend Marathon has contributed over $19,500 to Bend and Central Oregon schools and nonprofits. We have a background in nonprofit work and volunteer service and we couldn't be happier about taking on the Bend Marathon to make an even larger impact on the Central Oregon community. Supporting local nonprofits and schools is one of the most important and satisfying aspects of holding events like the Bend Marathon.
we've also been fortunate to work with and provide financial support to the following groups
(Summit High School Cross Country has been at Bend Marathon and Half since year one!)
