2022 Charity Program Overview

The Flying Pig Marathon Charity Program provides four (4) avenues for charities to utilize the Flying Pig events as a fundraiser. Over the last 22 years, the Flying Piganthropy program has helped participating charities to collectively raise over $18 million.

The four (4) levels of participation are briefly described here:

The traditional method of having participants “run/walk for the cause”. Participants can use all of the Flying Pig weekend events to collect pledges, solicit sponsors, build teams and challenges, etc. All funds raised by the participants go directly to the charity.

Volunteer Level (Grunts)

The most popular level of raising funds for charity is by becoming one of the 250+ volunteer groups that comprise over 8500 volunteers needed to make the Pig run! Volunteer groups representing charities provide the Marathon Weekend with much-needed and critical operating assistance. All facets of the event involve volunteers. Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age, receive a collector t-shirt, and the groups will be assigned a job at which the entire charity group will work the same duty, same general location, same time. In appreciation of the volunteers’ efforts, the Flying Pig will make a direct donation to the charity and will receive recognition on the Flying Pig website. For information regarding the Volunteer Level, please contact Claudia Heidelman at claudia@flyingpigmarathon.com.

Raffle Level (Piggest Raffle Ever)

This level of charity participation is probably the easiest manner of involvement but requires the charity to continually and consistently promote their participation in the Piggest Raffle Ever. Charities wishing to participate in the Piggest Raffle Ever must fill out and send in an application. The Pig Staff will then post the charity’s name in a drop-down menu at the secure website www.piggestraffleever.com. The charity must then promote the website and ask their constituents to go there and raffle tickets on their behalf. Raffle tickets cost $5 each and 100% of that money goes in the form of a donation back to the charity. The person buying the raffle tickets has a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Other options for selling tickets are also available. Charities may also sell paper tickets or eTickets from a mobile device. Please contact Charity Coordinator, Joel Barnhill (joel@flyingpigmarathon.com), if interested in one of these two options. Participating charities will also be recognized on the Flying Pig website. More information about the Piggest Raffle Ever is located here.
