Santa Cruz 2017 Human Race Walkathon and Fun Run! @ The Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County

Santa Cruz County is already a pretty dreamy place to be but it is about to get more magical as 130 Human Race teams hit the pavement to begin fundraising for their goal. On March 28th teams will kick off a six week campaign to make magic, give more,and grant wishes as they collectively step out to ask the community for financial support for the 37th Human Race Walkathon and Fun Run.

You can show your support by choosing your favorite cause, raising funds, then joining us at the Human Race, Saturday May 13th where nearly 2000 individuals will converge along West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz to celebrate community.

Race day includes a five-mile walk and fun run, complimentary breakfast, music along the course, a costume contest, a BBQ lunch and festivities.

The Volunteer Center has geared to create a truly magical day at the Race with the 2017 fairytale theme. Not only can you expect the usual features of a people’s parade of lively costumes and banners, free food, and music along the course but they will also have a post race family friendly fair, and plenty of storybook themed activities for all ages.
Can’t make it to the race? You can still step up for the causes you care about by making a donation. With over 130 deserving non-profits, schools, and community groups to choose from we are sure you will find a team that inspires you.

The 2017 Human Race is brought to you by the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County in partnership with Community Foundation Santa Cruz County.
