The 2019 Ascension Seton Austin Marathon presented by Under Armour®is proud to announce Lance Armstrong as the 2019 Austin Gives Miles Charity Chaser. Armstrong’s involvement will highlight Austin Marathon’s continued support of the Austin community, elevate Austin Gives Miles’ profile, and help surpass the $1 million fundraising goal.
We are asking you, the public, to support Lance's Chase and Austin Gives Miles by making tax deductible donation in honor of our 28 local charities who work to support the needs of the Austin community.
How it works:
Lance will start the 2019 Austin Marathon in last place and will raise money for every marathoner he passes on his 26.2 mile journey.
Who it Benefits:
Money raised by the 2019 Charity Chaser program will benefit all 28 of our Austin Gives MIles Official Charities. Funds raised will be split evenly between eligible charities after the race has been run and the final totals have been counted.
