The Wildflower Run is a 501(c)3 non-profit event, completely organized and staffed by branch and community volunteers; every dollar above and beyond the cost of putting on the event goes toward a range of philanthropic interests in support of our mission.
While our first Wildflower Run raised just $1000, the event has grown steadily, enabling us to continually expand the number of scholarships we offer and the number of organizations and programs we support. Wildflower Fund allocations (a combination of Wildflower Run registrations, corporate sponsorships, and individual donations) reached a record $65,000 in 2019.
