Generation SERVE is honored to be selected as one of the 2023 charities for the Austin Marathon Gives program, the official charity program of the Austin Marathon. For the 8th consecutive year, the Moody Foundation is the presenting sponsor to match funds raised up to $10,000.
On February 19, 2023, the Austin Marathon strives to improve the lives of those around the event. This goes beyond the participants and reaches into the realms of spectators, passersby, and the greater community, including Generation SERVE!
The great part of the Austin Marathon Gives platform is that you do not have to be a runner to help Generation SERVE unlock its match! Whether you volunteer at a hydration station, are out of town, or run the 5k, Half Marathon, or Marathon in support of Generation SERVE, everyone is invited to learn how to help fundraise during this virtual session.
While learning to fundraise isn't the most riveting activity for all ages, we are asking parents to join us to learn more about how you can get the whole family involved. Our virtual meeting will talk about:
- The purpose and goals of the Austin Marathon Gives fundraiser
- What a match from the Moody Foundation is
- How to talk to your child(ren) about fundraising and why it is important
- Steps to take to fundraise for Generation SERVE using the online platform
Run the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5k
If you are running the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5k, during the registration process, you can select Generation SERVE as the charity you want to run for! Let us know you are running on behalf of Generation SERVE here.
Cheer on Runners on Race Day!
On race day, Generation SERVE will also be staffing the Mile 15 Water Aid Station. High Five Events has also committed to donating towards our $10,000 match from the Moody Foundation for every volunteer we bring to support the races! Sign up for a shift and come cheer on runners with Generation SERVE!
- This activity is great for all ages and all Generation SERVE families!
- Our program is designed to be a family experience; however, for this activity, it is okay if just adults attend, given that the project is not typical.
