The 15th Fun Run for Charities will be Saturday, Sept. 1, starting at 9 a.m. at Red Lodge Lions Park. To sign up for this year’s event entitled “Giving for Good” and make a contribution to your favorite organization/s drop by the Red Lodge Area Community Foundation at 122 Hauser Ave. S., or calling (406) 446-2820, or go online at www.redlodgefunrun.org.

Red Lodge has a number of nonprofit, volunteer organizations making a significant impact in the community. Sixty-one of these organizations depend in large part upon donations made through the Annual Fun Run for Charities.

These community-minded organizations focus on some of the most pressing needs of the community.

Heritage Preservation: By preserving and sharing our history we can best remember our heritage. Broadway Flags brightens the Red Lodge Broadway corridor by displaying historical and patriotic flags honoring our founding immigrants, our Nation, and our visitors. Buses of Yellowstone Preservation Trust keeps local history alive with original Yellowstone Park buses and vehicles from the 1930’s and beyond. Carbon County Historical Society & Museum preserves and displays the history of Carbon County and provides educational programs and traveling exhibits for all ages. Finnish Kaleva Park promotes the Finnish culture and traditions through preservation of the park and using it for family and community events.

Sally Martin Match Fund: If you cannot decide which organizations to support, keep in mind that a donation to the match fund benefits all 61 charities.
