Each year, thousands of charity runners participate in the Run For A Reason Charity Program presented by Bank of America/Merrill Lynch with a mission to give back, change lives and raise awareness. Utilizing P3R events as a platform for fundraising, the charity program provides much-needed financial support to charities. Join our 100+ charity community that has raised over $7.5 million since 2009. No matter your cause, anyone can run for a reason!
