The Critz Tybee Run Fest and Dale Critz Jr., founder and main sponsor of the successful two-day race event, announced the non-profit recipients of the 2015 Critz Tybee Run Fest proceeds. Each year the Critz Tybee Run Fest gives back to the community by donating all net profits raised through sponsorships, advertising and race entry fees to deserving area non-profit organizations. The 2015 grants will support school programs, college education, healthy lifestyles for kids and teens, and other education and health related causes.
Thirteen area organizations will receive grants from the $64,500 made up by the net proceeds of the 2015 Critz Tybee Run Fest. Bringing the total of grant donations, since the inception of the Critz Tybee Run Fest, to over $440,000.
Dale Critz Jr.: “Our goal of the Critz Tybee Run is to put on a great race and support healthy living and education in our community.”
Registration for the 2016 race events are open and organizers hoping to raise more money this year to increase distribution of proceeds.
