The Cascade Relays Foundation

The Cascade Relays Foundation supports local non-profits, school groups, and community organizations in the communities our events travel through.  Cascade Relays has directly donated a total of $235,000 to local nonprofits and community groups since its founding in 2008.

Scott and Carrie Douglass, co-founders of Cascade Relays, announced the formation of the Cascade Relays Foundation in November 2016. The Foundation allows Cascade Relays to continue supporting nonprofits in the communities along its Cascade Lakes Relays, Bend Beer Chase, Spokane to Sandpoint Relay and Centennial Beer Chase course routes.  Cascade Relays also provides pro-bono support and free equipment for several local fundraising races throughout the year, including the Boys and Girls Club Thanksgiving Classic and The Ronald McDonald House Striped Sock Walk. 

In 2017, The Foundation will grant $65,000 to partnering charities.
