2017 Mission

Each year The City Run gives all race profits to a worthy cause in the city of Chillicothe. 

For the 2017 race we will be donating all profits to the Mighty Children's Museum, which is opening in late fall of this year. All funds will go towards one of the final exhibits being installed–the playful tree. This tube-filled tree stimulates children's senses as they insert colorful scarfs into the roots of the tree. The scarfs are then suctioned up into clear tubes that wind in and around the tree. The journey is finished as the scarfs come shooting out the tops of the tree, to undoubtedly make your child giggle and say, "again, again!" Join us race day June 10th, 2017 at 8am!

The City Run Gives

Total Amount Given: $22,000


$5000

2014 was the kick-off year for The City Run and it couldn't have been any more fun! We donated all our race dollars to go towards the yearly city fireworks to light up the night sky on July 4th. Funding for activities like this can be an issue and our goal was to add more lights to the firework show. 

$10,000

2015 brought on a new excitement as we were able to DOUBLE our gift to the city! If you live in Chillicothe you'll know that the Yoctangee bridge is a very special place. Senior proms, homecomings, heck even wedding photos have been taken in this historical bridge. All race profits were donated to the rebuilding of the bridge and it is scheduled for renovation in Spring 2016.

$7,000

2016 brought a new energy to the city of Chillicothe with several new businesses opening in the downtown. Our race profits went towards beautifully potted plants to bring new life to the streets of Chillicothe. As well as modern bike racks and additional waste bins to keep the trash off the streets. We also gave a $1,000 college scholarship to a high school senior.

We certainly love watching you cross the finish line. But, I'm sorry–there's nothing more cute than the deep joy of a child feeling accomplished as their complete their run! And this year you can register them in the FUN RUN, too!

Hi There ... 

There’s something about accomplishing a 5K run that just feels good. I know you’re not sure if you’re up for it yet–but what if you knew your run was going to be about more than just you? The City Run proceeds go to a worthy cause in the city of Chillicothe. Because of you we gave $5,000 to the city fireworks in 2014, $10,000 to the Yoctangee Bridge in 2015, and $7,000 towards potted plants and bike racks in 2016. 

For the 2017 race we will be donating all profits to the Mighty Children's Museum, which is opening in late fall of this year. All funds will go towards one of the final exhibits being installed–the playful tree. This tube-filled tree stimulates children's senses as they insert colorful scarfs into the roots of the tree.

The journey is finished as the scarfs come shooting out the tops of the tree, to undoubtedly make your child giggle and say, "again, again!" Join us race day June 10th, 2017 at 8am!

With My Best,
