Help Ohio Outside support Toys for Tots! Sign up for race #3 of the Ohio Outside Trail Series on December 7th and use promo code “OPTOUTSIDE” to save $5.00 off your entry.

For every promo code used on Black Friday through Cyber Monday, Ohio Outside will donate $10.00 to Toys for Tots. Also, again this year, Ohio Outside will place donation vouchers on the prize table. In lieu of picking a prize, age group winners can opt to pick up a voucher and turn it in to the race director. The dollar amount on the voucher will be donated to Toys for Tots.

Our goal this year, with the help of our runners, is to write a check to Toys for Tots for at least $500.00.

Now #optooutside on Black Friday, go hit a trail, enjoy the outdoors and run hard. There is still time to get into shape.

Ohio Outside will work with the Summit County Chapter to purchase and deliver toys or make a donation to purchase toys.

Why We Chose Toy for Tots

For the TOT website: Over 97% of your donation goes directly to our mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. The 3% spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses — not one donated dollar goes to salaries or any other manpower costs.

From bestcompany.com website: Those looking for a charitable organization which does not have significant administrative costs and reasonably-paid executives with responsible fiscal practices should consider giving to Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The organization has been giving hope to children at Christmas for nearly 70 years and is regularly recognized as a high-quality charity. For those wanting to have documentation of their gift for tax purposes are advised to donate online rather than at a drop box; however, the holiday spirit of giving anonymously is recognition enough for many. The Review Team recommends Marine Toys for Tots for its efficiency in delivering hope to underprivileged children.
