Charity Fundraising


Santa Rosa runners are some of the most generous out there
Powerful races can be fueled by the power of giving back. Now, with the help of GoFundMe, it is easy to join the hundreds of Santa Rosa Marathon participants using their race to raise money for a charity they care about.

Meet Ella

Matrix Mighty Milers has given Ella a place to push herself to new limits and at the same time feel good about where she is today. She can put in full effort and reach new goals, or she can have a hard day where it is all too much. Either way, she feels accepted and understood. High expectations for her extra challenges is what I hope for Ella. Mighty Milers offers both. It has given our family a place to feel community and experience being a part of a team. This program has moved Ella from sitting with a screen, to being out on trails. Today she told me she loves being active.
