The Dead Garden Run is always held at a botanic garden, to support their mission and spread awareness of the great work they do to preserve, educate, and insure that the beauty and diversity of nature can be enjoyed by us and future generations. Just go to the Locations page to see if there is a Dead Garden Run near you.

In addition to supporting the garden itself, the Dead Garden Run also donates a percentage of the proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and we have partnered with the Red Cross to organize and promote an onsite blood drive the day of the event. These are all great causes – what we do is create a unique adventure so you have fun supporting them.
