Don’t want to run but want to help out? 

Like many nonprofits and businesses, 2020 has been a difficult year for GO FAR. As a 501(c)3 North Carolina-based nonprofit, our primary source of revenue is two in-person races held annually for the children who participate in the GO FAR program. Despite the lack of funding, GO FAR has spent the year finding new ways to serve in the community and schools who rely on our programming. For 17 years, GO FAR has served schools, children, and families in the Triad and beyond. One hundred percent of every donation will go to funding GO FAR and providing opportunities for young children to develop healthy habits and stronger resilience. 

Please consider donating to GO FAR.
