EUGENE MARATHON CHARITY PROGRAMS

Eugene Has Heart LogoEUGENE HAS HEART

Eugene Has Heart is the Eugene Marathon’s charity initiative, providing participants the ability to not only run the marathon, half-marathon or 5k, but to do it for a reason. American Cancer Society’s Team Determination is the official charity partner for 2020. Read more about our charity partners below!

This year, the Eugene Marathon is excited to partner with the American Cancer Society by supporting their DetermiNation Endurance Series. The DetermiNation program unites you with a very important mission – the mission to save lives from all types of cancer! Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society saves lives and creates a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. When you join us, we’ll show you exactly that all of that means.

Team Determination offers incredible benefits to its members, including free race entry, a celebration dinner, exclusive race weekend amenities, and a lot more. To start your journey down this amazing path, please reach out to the American Cancer Society staff, at Kristen.Salladay@cancer.org or 541.517.8939 or Brenda.Webber@cancer.org or 541.520.2710.
