Our Causes

The River Valley Run exists to provide a premier trail run experience in order to help sustain River Valley Ranch. In addition to that, we are excited to raise awareness for other grass-roots, faith-based charities in our community.

When you participate in the River Valley Run, you’re supporting much more than a single event; you’re making a lasting impact on thousands of people in our community. Your donations (above your registration fee) support the summer camp ministry of RVR. We hope that you will consider making a donation to RVR during the registration process.
