At Cascades Relays, being a positive member of the communities we live in and travel through is very important to us. The Cascade Relays Foundation, founded in 2016, supports local non-profits, school groups, and community organizations in the communities our events travel through. Cascade Relays has directly donated over $600,000 to local nonprofits and community groups since its founding in 2008.
The Foundation allows Cascade Relays to support organizations in the communities along its Cascade Lakes Relays and Bend Beer Chase course routes. Cascade Relays also provides pro-bono support and free equipment for several local nonprofit events throughout the year, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend Thanksgiving I Like Pie run, Courage to Run 5K, Saint Patrick’s Day Dash, and TEDxBend.
