About Rise Above 

Rise Above is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to giving Massachusetts youth in foster care access to extracurricular activities. By funding individual requests for sports fees and equipment, music lessons, summer camp, prom expenses and more, Rise Above give youth the chance to try new activities, build self-esteem and experience the power of play. Learn more at www.weriseabove.org. 


Fundraise for Rise Above!

Your individual or team fundraising page is where you can raise additional support for the kids in foster care Rise Above serves! It allows you to ask your friends and families for donations to support you in your run or walk. You can customize our page with why this cause is important to you and why you’re running or walking for kids in foster care.  Simply click the big FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN button and you'll instantly have your own fundraising page.


What should my fundraising goal be?

That’s up to you! We challenge each individual to raise $200 and teams to set your goal at $1,000 per team. 5 members raise $200 each and you hit your goal! The beautiful thing about this type of friend raising is that it is microdonations that add up to a large number that will have a huge impact on children in our community. Need more motivation? We’ll be awarding prizes to the top individual and top team fundraisers!


How do I sign up for the race?

If you'd like to participate in the race by either walking or running the 5K course, or walking the 1-mile route, register here: runwalkforriseabove.racewire.com
