$50,000 raised for the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills, thanks to you!


Seeing so many families come together for the Reindeer Fun Run each year puts a huge smile on all of our faces, and with the continuous support of our sponsors and participants, we are always looking for new ways to make the Run even better.

While bringing the Sandhills community together is a priority of ours, a big mission of the Reindeer Fun Run is to put the support that all of you provide back into the community.

We are proud to say that at the conclusion of 2015’s Reindeer Fun Run, we raised $50,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills! This is the largest single donation we have made towards the organization, whose mission “is to inspire, enable and educate young people from all backgrounds and circumstances to realize” their potential.

To date, the Reindeer Fun Run has raised a total of $250,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills.

Such a successful donation is attributed to all 2,662 runners who participated last year. In fact, 2015 was our biggest year yet!
