The Syracuse Festival of Races is pleased to let our participants determine which non-profit organizations benefit from our event.  The following is the most current list of area non-profits planning to raise funds and visibility for their programs and services through their participation in this year's Tops Friendly Markets Community Walk and the other three events of the Syracuse Festival of Races.

Once again this year, we're delighted to include the option of online donations via  The CrowdRise platform offers a convenient source for information about our beneficiaries at  Also adding convenience is donation by credit card, enabling individuals to support deserving non-profits while reaping credit card rewards at the same time.

If you're affiliated with a non-profit group that you'd like us to add to our list, please contact Dave Oja at

If you're a runner, walker, volunteer, spectator, or Web surfer who'd like to support one of the groups listed below, please call the contact person for that organization or just click on the contact person's e-mail address to send that person an e-mail indicating your interest.
