Re: “The colors of money

Also, read the fine print. If the race claims that "75% of donations go to local efforts" the follow up question is to see if the race itself is that "local effort" or "educational program" that they are supporting (those t-shirts and cups of gatorade are not free) and that quoted percentage may only be for donations above and beyond the base entry fee. Also note that many of the races make a donation based on the net profits, not gross. It can be a very small number after the race organizers take their cut.

For this reason I will not volunteer or run in a race run by a for-profit organization here in town. There are just too many other good races that are fully managed and operated by volunteer based non-profits around here.
