The Mission of the Seacoast Half Marathon:
Caring for the coast,”one step at a time” is our motto. Each year, we donate 100% of the net proceeds to a mindfully selected seacoast nonprofit organization. We strive to put on a well-organized and safe event that highlights the beauty of New Hampshire’s historic seacoast. We encourage all levels of athletes to enjoy themselves while also providing them an opportunity to significantly benefit our community.
The 2016 Seacoast Half Marathon Beneficiary
The Seacoast Family Food Pantry (SFFP) is one of the oldest social service agencies in New Hampshire, started in 1816 by a small group of women whose goal was to feed the families of fishermen in Portsmouth, NH.
Today, the SFFP strives to fulfill the needs of low-income individuals and families with food, personal care products and education for healthy living. These services are provided on both an emergency and on-going basis, with respect for the dignity of each individual.
SFFP serves the Seacoast area including Greenland, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kittery ME, New Castle, Newington, North Hampton, Portsmouth, Rye, Seabrook and Stratham.
