Extra Contributions – Where does the money go?
Money raised at Sean’s Run is contributed to fund programs implemented by schools, youth organizations, MADD and RID that combat underage drinking, impaired driving and teens’ lax use of seatbelts. Also, Sean’s Run funds scholarships going to deserving seniors from across the region. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and participants, Sean’s Run has contributed $183,571 since 2002.
