The Children of Peru Foundation is proud to announce its participation in the Charity Program of the  Big Sur Marathon to take place on April 24th 2022. 

This allows us to provide guaranteed Big Sur Marathon entries  to runners who commit to make a donation or raise funds for the Children of Peru Foundation

The minimum fundraising commitment has been fixed to $1,200 per spot (with a registration fee of $150 that will count towards your minimum fundraising commitment). No race fee as it is taken care of by us. A limited number of guaranteed spots are available and, as usual, they will be granted on a first-come first-served basis, so email us now to start reserving your spot!

Fundraising
Team 
Children of Peru  participants are encouraged to set their own fundraising goals. We require that charity participants raise as least $1,200, 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 the Big Sur Marathon 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 United NYC Half?” 
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  bigsur@childrenofperu.org  for more information and for registration forms. Please specify if you need a guaranteed entry or if you are already registered for the race.
