Free Wheelchair Mission's
10th Annual Run for Mobility

Make Your Miles Matter!

The “Run for Mobility” is Free Wheelchair Mission's annual fundraising program presented in partnership with the Surf City Marathon. Free Wheelchair Mission is proud to be the only official charity partner of the Surf City Marathon, and the 2015 race will be our 10th annual event!

Official Run for Mobility participants receive step-by-step tools and resources to help them raise funds and awareness for Free Wheelchair Mission between now and race day on February 1, 2015.

Since the first Run for Mobility in 2006, Surf City athletes have helped Free Wheelchair Mission raise over $1.7 million to date, sending over 35,000 wheelchairs to recipients in need! From all the proceeds from the Run for Mobility so far, we could line up wheelchairs wheel-to-wheel along our entire 26.2 mile beachfront course!

1) Register & pay for your Surf City Marathon race spot directly from the Surf City Marathon at (Race registration fee reimbursement available to qualifying official team members.)

2) Become an official Free Wheelchair Mission team member by setting up your online fundraising page at .
(Note: all fundraisers will be asked for a $20 participation fee that will guarantee all Run for Mobility program benefits, and will also count toward your overall fundraising.)
