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 2018 Seacoast Half Marathon Beneficiary
The Birchtree Center transforms the lives of children and youth with autism. Since the nonprofit first opened its doors in 2002, the number of students with autism in New Hampshire has increased nearly sixfold. Over that same time, Birchtree has provided over half-a-million hours of one-on-one programming and instruction to students with autism at school, at home, and in our community.
