Ronald McDonald House
Since opening in 1984, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida has served as a home-away-from-home and source of respite and resources for more than 20,000 adults and children. Originally built as a 6-bedroom facility, we underwent 2 expansions before opening a brand new 26-bedroom House at 5200 Bayou Boulevard in Pensacola, Florida on August 23, 2010.
Running Wild is honored to support the Ronald McDonald House by coordinating logistics surrounding the popular Firecracker 5k. The Firecracker 5k is a summer staple in the Pensacola and Gulf Coast region, drawing many to our area. The run gives economic boost to the community while raising funds to support the mission of the Ronald McDonald House. Running Wild and RMH work to create a fantastic event that helps many.
YMCA of Northwest Florida
The YMCA of Northwest Florida has been a leader in youth development, adult wellness and community support in the Florida Panhandle for nearly 130 years. The Y's strength lies in their ability to unite people of all faiths, races, ages, abilities and incomes. Through YMCA programs, our community’s children and families grow strong in spirit, mind and body. At the Y, every body belongs!
The YMCA and Running Wild have a 10+ year history of support and community involvement. The two organizations have worked and continue to work together on multiple projects and health efforts. Both entities share a complete commitment to community, serving and health.
Page & Palette
This third-generation family-owned bookstore has been a Fairhope landmark for over 40 years. Proudly seated in the heart of the downtown Fairhope community, they are a host to a range of author events from local, up-and-coming names to block-busting celebrities. In addition to new (and used) books and art supplies, they also carry greeting cards, journals, and a variety of merchandise. All of this over a cup of locally roasted coffee in Latte Da–Page and Palette's very own coffee shop–it's no wonder some of customers never leave the store
Page & Palette shares Running Wild’s passion for endurance sport and encouraging a healthy lifestyle. The bookstore hosts numerous events and books signings that feature famous and inspirational athletes. After creating The Good Life, a foundation which promotes biking and athletics for all ages, Running Wild and Page & Palette collaborate on events to get folks of all ages out and active.
