Running for a Cause

Our charity program helps individual runners, teams, and nonprofits support causes close to their hearts by making Fit & Able events an opportunity to raise money for specific charities.

Create a Fundraising Team & Raise Money

Once you’ve assembled a team, contact to register and receive a $5 rebate per participant for your charity. Example: 25 registrations = $125 rebate back to the charity

While registering you can set up a fundraising page. During registration, other runners will have an opportunity to donate to your charity. You can also invite anyone from the community to donate through your fundraising page. Your charity will receive 100% of the donations made to your page.

* Charity rebate program may not be available at all events or race. Only registrations for 5K and greater races are eligible for the rebate. All rebates will be paid out after the race. Please contact us at for more information. 

Create a Volunteer Team

Charities and nonprofits can create teams and receive a stipend for volunteering during the race. Fit & Able offers volunteers who aren't working for service hours a $15 registration credit for their help. Rather than receive the stipend themselves, each volunteer on the team will have their Fit & Able credit given to the charity as a donation. Please contact for more information and to help us identify your team members.

Fundraising Incentive Levels

As a "thank you" to those doing extra work and serving as a fundraiser for Fit & Able, we have set these incentive levels to give you something to shoot for!

  • Level 1 – Raise $50 and you will receive a Team Fit & Able Shoe Bag
  • Level 2 – Raise $100 and you will earn a Certified Fit & Able Water Bottle
  • Level 3 – Raise $250 and you'll get a Certified Fit & Able T-shirt a refunded race registration fee. Please note: registrants who set up a fundraiser will need to select a checkbox indicating that they want the refund if they reach this level.
  • Level 4 – Raise $500 nets you a Fit & Able Fleece Jacket
  • Level 5 – Raise $1,000 will get you a $100 Omega Sports Gift Card

Prize levels are cumulative (ie, if you raise $300 you get levels 1, 2, and 3!). All donations received by race day for each event will count toward the special prize that will be awarded to the top fundraiser on event day.

Team Program

Everyone has some friends that love fitness and love running. They also have those friends that are always on the fence when it comes to fitness “One day I’ll join you for a run…” Have you ever just wanted to bring them all together and make today that “one day” Now you can!

It doesn’t matter if this group of yours is made up of colleagues, neighbors, organization members, family members, fitness groups, or some other random collection of people. We want to help you come out and experience the day TOGETHER!

Our whole goal is to incentivize YOU to get your squad to the start line.  It doesn’t matter what distance each member runs, we just want you there and active!

Corporate Teams

Fit & Able events are a great team bonding experience for company employees. It rallies employees around a fun and healthy activity and encourages team camaraderie by training together before the race. Corporate teams have the opportunity to win an award for the largest team.


Fit & Able has a 24 week program for runners preparing for the half marathon or the full marathon. The program includes training plans for runners of all abilities, paces, and goals. Fit & Able can help you whether you are running a specific distance for the first time or you are a veteran to the distance and just want to improve your time and performance.

Ambassador Program 

You only need to watch a few minutes of a race to learn, runners are a passionate group of people. Whatever their split-time, size or story, runners are the ones who’ve decided to get out of bed, get moving and get after it.

Fit & Able puts together a select team of runners each year to serve as ambassadors for our many races throughout the year. We search for go-getters who are skilled at bringing people together and motivating others towards a common goal. The majority of people who’ve run our races say that it was because a friend or family member encouraged them to try. That’s why our ambassadors are so important. Often all it takes is the right person to change someone’s thoughts from, “Never!” to “Why not me?” These lovely men and women are here to help you get across that finish line!

Think you have what it takes to be a Fit & Able Ambassador? Whether you’ve run 100 ultra marathons or are looking to train for your first 5K, we want to hear from YOU!
