CHARITIESwe support

aR has made a commitment to support the charitable organizations that are dearest to our hearts. This is done through a variety of charitable giving outlets associated with our professional event services. Every event we host benefits, in part or in whole, a non-profit named by the race director. In addition, team members may suggest other charitable giving opportunities for us to support throughout the year.
