Old Bill's Fun Run
Twenty-five years ago, an anonymous, philanthropic couple, fondly known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, envisioned a collaborative event to support local nonprofits. For the first time, organizations came together in an efficient, unified fundraiser that raised awareness of community needs. Over the last two decades, more than $189 million has been raised for local organizations, and it has inspired similar events around the country.
About Old Bill's Fun Run
In a typical year, Old Bill’s Fun Run starts and ends at Town Square and includes a 5K and 10K run/walk, as well as a highly competitive Diaper Derby. Winners of each race receive prize money to donate to their favorite nonprofits.
Of course, pandemic times are anything but typical! Decisions about how to safely celebrate Old Bill’s 25th anniversary are subject to public health metrics and guidelines. Stay tuned to oldbills.org for the latest event information.
In 2021, the four-week Old Bill’s Giving Season kicks off August 13 and closes on September 17 at 5PM.
