Run for Hope

The 36th annual Across the Bay 5K and 12K is coming back to San Francisco on July 14, 2019! The run is operated by Represent Running, which partners with Edgewood Center for Children and Families to benefit the 10,000+ youth and families in our care. Runner Magazine named Across the Bay as among the most scenic footraces in the country.

This scenic race attracts runners and mental health enthusiasts from across the world who spend one beautiful, crisp morning running along the San Francisco Bay. True to its name, the 12K sees its participants running across the actual bay on the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, while those running the 5K will twist around the historic Aquatic Park area in San Francisco.

Are you already running but want to do more to support Edgewood? You can start, customize, and manage your own fundraiser! Connect with your network and show them that you’re running for a cause with our personal fundraising tool Everyday Hero.
