Fundraising

Raising money for charity is an excellent way to make your participation in the Hamptons Marathon & Half an even more meaningful experience, and help keep you running when the running gets tough. We are proud to support our Official Charity Partners, Southampton Hospital, Southampton Educational Foundation, Southampton Youth Services and the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps.

For guaranteed race entry and to make your miles count, consider joining on of our Official Charity Teams:

GallopNYC

GallopNYC brings the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to provide measurable benefits for people with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges. Through weekly riding sessions with PATH-certified instructors, we help riders learn new skills, inspiring each one to live life as fully, productively and independently as possible. GallopNYC serves over 500 hundred riders every week at six NYC locations, including two sites that are GallopNYC’s own. GallopNYC is committed to serving low-income families since they are more likely to lack access to adequate services. Please contact Amanda Gallo for more information.

Team Boomer

Team Boomer works to encourage people with cystic fibrosis to live active, healthy lifestyles and welcomes any athlete to join the team to raise funds and awareness for our cause. Please contact: Email teamboomer@esiason.org or call 646-292-7930

ALS Association

The ALS Association’s mission is to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support. Our services are made possible by the generosity of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future. This terrible disease knows no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries. It can strike anyone at any time.

Team ALS athletes combine their passion and commitment to finding a cure for ALS while achieving physical challenges through athletic events, such as marathons, triathlons, long-distance rides, swimming, winter sports, and obstacle course races. We are spreading awareness and making a difference with every mile!
