We are proud to support our Charity Partners!
For the seventh consecutive year, the 30A 10K Thanksgiving Day Race team has designated four local charities which will share the proceeds from this year’s race. The local organizations selected include Sandcastle Kids, the Seaside Repertory Theater, the Walton County Cultural Arts Alliance, and the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance.
The decision on what charities would be selected was based on various factors, but the 30A10K team agrees that the most important is that the funds are allocated to a group that benefits the local community. Past charities have included the South Walton Fire District, Food for Thought, Shelter House, Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, and Anchorage Children’s home.
To date, this event has been responsible for raising more than $250,000 for local non-profit organizations.
