The St. George Marathon "Official Charity Program" is designed to assist participating charities to achieve financial support from event participants throughout the Marathon weekend. We encourage all marathon participants to aid in these efforts.
Each Official Charity has been awarded a certain amount of marathon entry codes to sell in hopes to raise money for their efforts.
Please contact your charity of choice to donate directly and receive your marathon registration code from their office. IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Marathon registration fee still applies, and is collected in addition to the amount you choose to donate to the charity.
If you are interested in becoming an "Official Marathon Charity" please View and Complete the St. George Marathon Charity Application by clicking here. Please watch for the 2021 Charity application to be available in January 2021, all applications are due by February 28th.

Girls on the Run Southern Utah is an after school character building program for girls 3rd - 5th grade. The girls follow a fun curriculum that teaches about self-esteem, healthy living, fighting back against society's focus on external beauty and rejecting peer pressure. The 10 week program gives girls the tools to speak out against negativity, and the most important trait, confidence, to succeed in a changing world. With confidence, the girls learn to take risks, find their voice, and radiate power.

One out of every five children has dyslexia and they require specialized reading instruction to learn to read and spell. We have facilitated the training of several certified tutors and are currently establishing a scholarship fund for dyslexic children in our community to obtain tutoring. We also provide information and resources for parents and educators. We are the only non-profit organization that addresses this issue in southern Utah.
