Providing Charitable Support
Official Charity Partner
The Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half Marathon is thrilled to support the charitable work of the Paralyzed Veterans of America by waiving the race entry fee for participants who fundraises for this worthy cause. The first 20 people who fundraise a minimum of $250 will get a free half marathon entry and the first 20 people to fundraise at least $100 will earn a free Gateway 5K entry.
Since 2011, 2L Race Services through the Gettysburg North-South Marathon and Blue-Gray Half Marathon has helped generate over $20,000 for charity through fundraising efforts. In addition to participants fundraising thousands of dollars, 2L Race Services has also contributed over $10,000 to our charity partners.
