How would you like to DOUBLE the donations made to your Running with the Bears fundraising page?

For every donation made by your mom, your employer, or your favorite running partner, our challenge grant is going to double it!* ALL money raised is applied toward your goal (reach $500 and you get all the goodies- including a complimentary catered dinner, a RWTB sweatshirt, tech socks, and more surprises.)

Best part? 100% of donations support our (Mountain Circle’s) work with children and teens in foster care.

Check out our blog to read stories, and watch videos, of our services from the front lines of foster care and adoption. These incredible kids need us now. There is no time to waste. Please, Get involved, make a difference, and celebrate with us on August 20th!

Running with the Bears Charity Runners


Last year’s RWTB event raised $30,000. Can we raise $50,000 in 2016? 

YES!!! But we need your help. 

Mountain Circle Foster Care

Make a difference to      kids like Austin

August 20th will be here is just three short months. Please, help us make this weekend even more special. Let’s raise some serious money for these incredible kids!

How the challenge grant works:

1.) You share this opportunity with your supporters (by email, or by social media), with a link to your fundraising page (p.s. they can donate to you the old-fashioned way as well, just read below for our mailing address). Can’t find your page, or need help? Just email us! 

2.) RWTB Race Director is notified every time that someone wonderful makes a donation to your page (or sends a check to Mountain Circle at PO Box 554 Greenville, CA 95947). As soon as this happens, Josie will enter the same amount as a match to your page. This means that your mom’s generous donation of $50 will instantly become $100. Can’t beat that!!

Who is this challenge match donor? Meet Demetrious. He understands why foster kids need even more love and support…because he was one. 

We are SO excited to welcome Demetrious Dargan as the Running with the Bears special guest speaker at our Saturday Post-Race Hoedown.

“No matter what a child has been through, they deserve the opportunity to be adopted.”

Demetrious is a previous foster child, and he is challenging YOU to help us raise money for foster kids. Watch “Demetrious Dargan – Motivational Speaker” on Vimeo:


Demetrious is a phenomenal speaker and motivator, and we are so excited to have him present!
