Thank you for visiting the Human Race website.

It is with bittersweet sadness that we write this  today. After careful consideration and discussions with participants, nonprofits and funders, the Volunteer Center has decided to discontinue the Human Race event.  We are grieving some as we consider the 17 years of working alongside our agencies to further their missions. Together, we raised over $1 million dollars for hundreds of local nonprofit agencies through the past 17 years of the Human Race.

As you may know, participation in the Human Race has declined in recent years and the time and effort put into the event now outweighs its continuation. However, we have big plans to begin new and exciting offerings/resources for our partner agencies in 2018, and we are positive that these opportunities will provide the same value that is expected when it comes to Volunteer Center partnership.

In this environment of work smarter, not harder, we hope you will appreciate the circumstances under which we have made this decision. We sincerely apologize to those agencies and community members that this will cause an inconvenience. As we excitedly enter a new year, rest assured that we are as dedicated as ever to providing the best resources and services needed to volunteer programs in our community grow.

If you have any questions, please contact the Volunteer Center at or 920-832-9360.
