Many ways to "Run For Good"

Throughout our 30+ years of hosting races throughout CT and the region, we’re proud of the many positive community connections and various organizations that have benefitted from the generosity and kindness of the HMF community.


We want to thank you for supporting Run For Good efforts and also make sure you’re aware of different ways that you can use HMF Events to rally support around a community initiative or charity organization dear to you.  We’ve also got some new initiatives coming up!


American Red Cross blood drive, April 2 – With our office in East Hartford being part of the Goodwin University community, our staff will be on site there with some extra giveaways and goodies to thank donors for supporting this important cause. One Riverside Drive, East Hartford on April 2, from 11:30-5:30.  DETAILS


Official Charity program at the Eversource Hartford Marathon - Deadline to apply has been extended to Monday, April 1!  Official Charities of the 2024 Eversource Hartford commit to event volunteer roles and set fundraising goals for their groups while being supported with program benefits.  LEARN MORE

Outside of the Eversource Hartford Marathon, Group fundraisers throughout the year provide opportunities to bring together runners, walkers, fundraisers, volunteers and cheerleaders with various levels of support from our team. A successful annual effort with Gilead Community Services at the Middletown 10K and 5K Run/Walk on April 7 is just one example. LEARN MORE


Additionally, a select number of Charity Partner Events are on the HMF calendar each year. These races are produced by HMF to benefit another organization's mission, often with fundraising goals and group participation. Upcoming this spring is the MahoneySabol 5K at the Travelers Championship on April 27, which will benefit the Hospital for Special Care Neuromuscular Care Center. And, the CT RACE in the Park in New Britain - the annual Mother's Day weekend event benefits CT Breast Health Initiative.


NEW this year, HMF is participating in the Birdies for Charity program, an effort of the Travelers Championship to drive local fundraising, with a 15% bonus on donations supported by Webster Bank. This is the first year HMF’s Susie Beris MD Youth Running Program will be involved. DONATE


The HMF Can program is a long-running effort in conjunction with Stop & Shop to help alleviate food insecurity in communities.  In the first two weekends of 2024 O’race community events alone, the equivalent of approximately 310 meals was donated by race participants.


Thanks for all that you do to make these efforts successful!
