2019 Non-Profit Partnership

GGTC is working with Back on My Feet San Francisco as the club’s non-profit partner for 2019 and 2020. Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way society approaches homelessness.

The organization’s unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives. Through our partnership, GGTC members will have the opportunity to work directly with Back on My Feet’s members.

Non-Profit Partnership Overview

The GGTC is committed to supporting local partners that work to promote and sustain a culture of active, healthy living in the Bay Area. Through the Non-Profit Partnership program, GGTC commits to delivering the following components to the selected partner for the two-year program length:

  • Funding through GGTC training programs: GGTC will donate a portion of participant program fees from its Olympic and half-Ironman distance training programs each year. Due to the fluctuation in training program participant numbers, the annual award amount varies, although the typical grant is between $3,000 and $4,000 per year.
  • Funding through GGTC fundraisers: GGTC will commit to holding at least one fundraiser independent of the training programs each year to generate additional funds our partner.
  • Volunteer participation in at least one event with our partner: GGTC commits to participation in at least one volunteer event organized by our partner.
  • Social media marketing: GGTC will promote our partner through its social platforms, club mailing list and training program marketing.
