Tiburon, CA

The Painted Turtle is excited to be the benefiting charity of the 4th Annual Tiburon Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and Kids Run this October. Join us for Marin’s most premier race with views of Mt. Tam, Golden Gate Bridge and more.

Additionally, The Painted Turtle is excited to share that we’ve received a generous matching gift opportunity to double your support. All donations, company matching gifts, and peer-to-peer fundraising will be matched by a generous gift from Jon & Alison Barad. In addition, our goal is to double volunteer support from 50 volunteers in 2015 to 100+ in 2016.  If we reach that milestone, those efforts will also be matched!

So what are you waiting for, sign up today to run, walk, roll or volunteer. By registering here, The Painted Turtle will receive $5 per registration. Want to take your support up a notch, create a fundraising page here to raise additional funds to count towards the match.
