Join us this May and run the OC Marathon as a Project Youth OCBF Champion!

As a champion, you’ll raise funds while you train for your race. You can fundraise as an individual, or join the law firm challenge and be a part of a team.

Run for a reason, and know that you are making a difference in the lives of Orange County youth. The dollars that you raise help ensure that youth and families get the programs they need to help them stay in school, healthy and drug free. Project Youth OCBF empowers youth and their families to make positive choices, building the foundation for a lifetime of opportunity and success.


Register at the OC Marathon website – – and designate Project Youth OCBF as your charity. Then, set up your webpage and you’re ready to email your friends (instructions below).

SUBJECT LINE: Help Me As I Run for Charity

Dear Friends and Family, on May 5, 2018 [or May 6 if running the half or full marathon], I will be participating in the OC Marathon as part of the 5K [or half/full marathon] race. I am using the run to support a local charity: Project Youth OCBF, a non-profit committed to promoting health, safety and education for Orange County’s at-risk youth. For more information on Project Youth OCBF’s great work for kids in our community, please visit

I ask you to show your support for my involvement by making a donation to my fundraising page: [INSERT YOUR FUNDRAISING LINK HERE]

From the kids helped by Project Youth OCBF and me, THANK YOU for your support!
