Music Half Gives Back



Throughout the summer, we are going to be highlighting one of the most crucial aspects of our event: The Non-Profit Partnerships. 
The Sarasota Music Half Marathon would be a totally different event if it were not for the massive amount of man-power which we derive from the area’s vast non-profit network. Over the course of the last 3 events, the SMHM has partnered with over 35 non-profits, donating over $72,000 back to these unique organizations.
These non-profits makeup much of the face to face interactions the participants have with the SMHM. You see them when you pickup your packet, when you check your bag, and when you park your car. They are there holding “Ask Me” signs to help you figure out where do go when you’re surrounded by 3000 people. They have that refreshing cup of water or energy drink and that much needed high-five as you’re pushing through mile 10.
Some even work over night to get the start-line setup and to prep for the after party!
What it all boils down to is that our non-profit partners create the backbone of this event. They help keep you safe on the course and they help us put on the most top-knotch event possible, year after year.
Stay tuned as we visit with each one of our non-profits to take a deeper dive into how they benefit our community, how your participation in the race helps them, and how they in-turn helped you on race weekend.
We look forward to telling their stories.
