Run Hard Supports Local Charities

Run Hard assists local charities by allowing them to use Run Hard race events to raise money for their cause. Charities receive all the benefits of hosting a race without any of the work!

How does it work?

  • Charities create a group that runners can join when registering for the a Run Hard race.
  • Runners that choose a group during race registration will receive an email with a unique link that they can send to potential supporters.
  • Supporters give to runners using the unique link or by visiting the Charity page.
  • Runners and group administrators receive an account where they login to view donations that have been made toward their cause.
  • When the race is over, Run Hard will write a check to the charity for the amount of the donations (minus fees).

If you would like to find out more about how you can partner with Run Hard to raise funds for your cause, contact Jesse Harmon.

Lighthouse for Life

Lighthouse for Life is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization seeking to combat sex trafficking through education, restoration, and empowerment.

Education - Spreading awareness of this issue to our community through civic organizations, schools, churches, youth groups, etc. Awareness is the first step to prevention.

Restoration - Helping restore victims of sex trafficking physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This takes place inside our long-term after-care facility. We provide young women with a safe living environment, clothing, meals, counseling, medical care, education, Bible studies, life skills, and extracurricular activities.

Empowerment - Working with both minor and adult victims of sex trafficking to provide services, support, guidance, and love. Equipping them with the skills they need to transform from victims to survivors.

XMA is about helping American Christians obey God’s desire for us to take the Gospel to all nations. As Jesus tells us in John 15:16, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit…” You have heard God’s call and we can help you answer that call.
Our volunteers serve on 8-12 day volunteer mission trips where they share the love of Jesus with overlooked people in remote locations around our world and help with human needs such as medical, dental, clean water, construction, educational and other basic needs. Our lives have been changed for the better by what Christ did for us. We now want to help others with their physical needs but more importantly to show them how they can have lasting peace in their lives. for more info go to

Forche Family Adoption

We would love for you to partner with us in bringing baby Forche home! We are a family of 5 and are seeking to adopt a child from the USA. We have gone through all the process and paperwork required and have been on the “waiting list” for about 5 months. We are with an accredited adoption agency, Bethany Christian Services. Our family is a family that is always up for a workout, a run, or an adventure! Connor (11) and Camden (9) have found a passion in running that is incredible, they are following their daddy’s footsteps. The boys have excelled in running these last years with the awesome coaches and teammates. We have loved being members of RUN HARD TEAM and TEAM UTOPIA. The coaches have been phenomenal and encouraging to our boys. We are looking for all levels of runners to join in with us and we run this race to bring baby Forche home! We are trying to raise funds for our adoption legal fees (@$5,000).
