The Rival Run™ is not a charity. We promote “for profit” events and our team strives to deliver amazing, well executed events as the best way to make your experience one you will never forget.
The Rival Run™ is not a charity. We are a for-profit event company that delivers amazing events designed to capture and celebrate the spirit of sports rivalries in a brand new way.
Our mission is to harness the passion of each rivalry to raise awareness and funding for important causes (which vary from event to event) while accomplishing more than we could on our own.
Does The Rival Run give to charity?
The Rival Run™ events each select one or more charitable causes. We are always on the lookout for opportunities to raise funds for and bring local awareness to our charity partners. We also contribute in the following ways:
- Event Donation. For each event we host we make a specific financial donation to ACTION AGAINST HUNGER, our National Charity Partner. No goods or services are exchanged for this donation. In addition we often work together with local non-profits to determine their needs. Our donations here vary from donating sponsorship, funds, tickets and more. This all depends on each non-profit’s interest, needs, or availability to help support the event, staff their booth and assist us will mobilizing volunteers in each city.
- Embedded Fundraising. Rival Run™ participants can donate funds to our national and local partners during the process of buying tickets to the event. This is an awesome way to assist us in fundraising for our Partners. 100% of funds donated here are given directly to the non-profit.
- Food & Goods Collection. Depending on the needs of our partners in each city we collect non-perishable food and other goods (coats, toys, hygiene items, etc) based upon time of year or need. The Rival Run™ encourages these donations by giving away prizes and swag to those who bring goods. Swag includes special tattoos, wristbands, or car decals, (or similar items) only available to participants in our food & goods collections.(Giveaways are only while supplies last in each city).
- Ticket Giveaways. We often give a limited number of VIP Charity tickets away. These tickets allow our non-profit partners to sell tickets on their own and keep 100% of the proceeds of the sale of tickets.
Are the Tickets I buy Tax Deductible?
Tickets to The Rival Run™ are not tax deductible. If you donate directly to one of our partners 100% of your donation is tax deductible.
