We are proud to support our Charity Partners!
For the sixth consecutive year the 30A 10K Thanksgiving Day Race team has designated three local charities which will share the proceeds from this year’s race. The local organizations selected include Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Northwest Florida, Sandcastle Kids, and the Seaside Repertory Theater.
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, and Anchorage Children’s home.
To date, this event has been responsible for raising more than $250,000 for local non-profit organizations.
