Ft. Lauderdale A1A Marathon Charities
Join the A1A Marathon & Half Marathon Charities
Get Up, Get Involved and Do Something. Charities of the A1A Marathon Let's Make It Better Together! Charity really does begin at home. Why not make it a family affair? Involve your children and grandchildren in learning about the world's needs and the charities that serve them. The children will never forget what they've learned, and you'll start them down the path to a lifetime of giving. A lifetime of sharing. And a lifetime of feeling good about it.
The Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon is working on several initiatives leading into this year's running festivities, it is our goal to be the leading marathon in Florida for championing the go green philosophy, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Below are some of the initiatives we are working on this year to improve our carbon footprint.

Sunny shores Sea Camp
Sunny Shores Sea Camp or ssscamp.org. Camp began 30 years ago as a dream of one man with Cystic Fibrosis; it included laughter of children; it resulted in countless hours of love. Helping families and mentoring children with Cystic Fibrosis. The Sole Sistas' & Bro's are a group of runners some of which have CF running in the A1A Half Marathon on February 19, 2012. We will be raising money in our efforts to benefit the all volunteer camp held in Disney Vero Beach every summer. This much needed camp helps shape the future of children and young adults and their families with this disease in which there is no cure.
