Charity Programs

The BMW Dallas Marathon Charity Program brings together various local charities in Dallas and national non-profit entities that partner with the BMW Dallas Marathon organization to raise funds in support of various causes. Charity Program partners play a vital role in supporting the success of the BMW Dallas Marathon and related events by providing both runners and volunteers.

Each charity must apply and be accepted by the BMW Dallas Marathon to become an official charity of the Dallas Marathon. For charity program registration, to apply or to receive more information, please email:

Back On My Feet

Back on My Feet is a non-profit that combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources. Our unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives.

For the individuals in our program, every mile matters. No matter if you are walking the 5k or running the marathon, “FundRacing” is a way to race and raise funds for our cause! Learn more about our program HERE.

For The Love of the Lake

We are a non-profit organization whose volunteers support programs to preserve and enhance White Rock Lake Park. We organize regular clean-up activities, tree planting events, and raise money needed to fund improvements to White Rock Lake Park. For more information, click HERE.
