SF Marathon Official Charity Programs
The San Francisco Marathon is committed to supporting the community we love by partnering with those organizations who share our care for the San Francisco residents and visitors who come to enjoy our city! Thanks to our amazing runners, our charity program continues to grow and support a wide variety of charitable organizations each year.
Official Charity Partner The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department administers more than 220 parks, playgrounds, and open spaces, including two outside the city limits– Camp Mather in Yosemite Valley and Sharp Park in Pacifica, Calif.
The SF park system includes 25 recreation centers, nine swimming pools, five golf courses and numerous tennis courts, ball diamonds, soccer fields and other sports venues. Further Park & Recreation department’s responsibilities are the Marina Yacht Harbor, the San Francisco Zoo, and Lake Merced.
Their staff members are diverse, committed, and talented recreation and park professionals, from gardeners, foresters, and recreation leaders to park patrol officers, custodians, electricians, painters, and more.
The San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department’s mission is to provide enriching recreational activities, maintain beautiful parks and preserve the environment for the well-being of our diverse community. They are a crucial component of making San Francisco a perfect city for our Marathon!
We encourage SF Marathon registered and interested runners and those who support them to consider making a small donation to SF Recreation & Parks! There are also tons of great opportunities to join their team as a volunteer!
