Proceeds from all race registrations will be donated to a global charitable organization, Mercy Corps, and a local Las Vegas charity, The Shade Tree.
Since 1979, Mercy Corps has helped people grappling with the toughest hardships survive – and then thrive. Mercy Corps helps individuals and communities around the world get back on their feet when a natural disaster strikes, economies collapse or conflict erupts. The organization strives to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.
The Shade Tree‘s mission is to provide safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance. The Shade Tree is the largest shelter of its kind in the state, and is the only 24-hour accessible shelter designed specifically to meet the needs of women, children and their pets in Southern Nevada.
