The Firehouse Run is proud to support our local Santa Clara Unified Schools and local Military Veteran groups. To accomplish this, we have partnered up with a couple of amazing local beneficiaries for our event:
Santa Clara Schools Foundation
The Santa Clara Schools Foundation (SCSF) is a nonprofit, all volunteer public benefit corporation formed in 1992 to help enrich the education of the students in the Santa Clara Unified School District by funding programs, projects, scholarships, and citizenship awards.

The Homeless Veterans Rehabilition Program helps veterans return to employment and stable housing while maintaining a clean and sober lifestyle. Rehabilitation involves 90 days of personal problem solving and life-skills training in a peer-support format, and an additional 90 days for job search and employment.
