Team Children of Peru participants are encouraged to set their own fundraising goals. We require that charity participants raise as least $500 (or $1,000 for the 52.4), but why stop there? Every dollar you raise for the Children of Peru Foundation helps us fund our different programs for poor kids in Peru. We will use the dollars you raised to make a difference for poor children in Peru.

Please note that NYRR requires athletes gaining entry via charity partners to meet fund raising commitments. Applicants are required to provide credit card information as a guarantee. Failure to comply will result in entry cancellation.

"Can I join if I already have my entry to the San Francisco Marathon?"

Runners who have already registered for the race and want to join our team so that they can also run for a cause, are more than welcome!!
Our Crowdrise page will be up and running soon! Email us to learn how to join us!

Why Run for the Children of Peru Foundation?

Since its creation, the Children of Peru Foundation has been working with several groups, association and NGOs to help poor children in Peru in the areas of health and education. We have built schools, we sponsor a school for special needs children, we are sending surgeons every year to provide free surgeries to children in need and we want to do much more.

Whether you finish in record time or just cross the finish line, your participation will have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of Peruvian children and their families.

Email sfmarathon (at) for more information and for registration forms. Please specify if you need a guaranteed entry or if you are already registered for the race.
