How do I participate?Sign Up
Click on the "Sign Up" button to set up your personal fundraising page for the animals at Seattle Humane, and then register separately with each race you would like to participate in.

Can I learn more and take a shelter tour?
We're currently under construction of our NEW lifesaving facility, but we'd love to show you the future of Seattle Humane with a tour (you'll just need to excuse the dust and construction noise). If you're interested, please contact or call (425) 373-5384 to set up a time to visit and learn more. Learn more about this exciting project here.

Can I fundraise for the animals in more than one race?
Absolutely! Many of our athletes have fundraised for the animals through their participation in multiple races throughout the country, throughout their sign up year. Simply update your personal fundraising page to reflect your most current race and keep your potential donors updated about your latest endeavors.

How do I fundraise for the animals?
Charity Athletes raise money for the animals at Seattle Humane by asking for donations from friends, co-workers, neighbors and family members. Your online Participant Center will help guide you through the process of sending out emails, asking for donations and thanking those who donate. Your Participant Center will also help you keep track of all your donations and the status of your goal. Don’t forget that many companies will match donations made by their employees. What a way to double the impact of a gift! Feel free to use this donation sheet to collect donations — we send thank you letters/tax receipts to everyone who donates who we have information for (name, address, phone, email, etc.).

Who do I contact if I don't see a donation show up on my personal fundraising page?
Email with the name of the person who made the donation and the amount (if you know it). We can look up in our database to see if your page didn't get credited and add the donation quickly.

What do I do with the cash and checks that I collect?
You can mail them to us before or after your race or you can bring in an envelope with all cash and checks to Seattle Humane. For mailing donations, please put in a clearly marked envelope and send to: Charity Athlete, Seattle Humane, 13212 SE Eastgate Way Bellevue, WA 98005. Please include your name on the memo field of any checks or that you include a note with your name for any cash so we can properly credit you.

Can I race with my pets?
Unfortunately, most races don’t allow pets on the race courses. Please check with your specific race for more information. We will do our best to keep you informed of upcoming races that do allow pets to participate.

Can I get a Charity Athlete poster or fliers to hang up in my office or around town?
Yes! You can pick up a few at Seattle Humane, or have a them mailed to you. Contact

How do I print out my gift history list?
In your Participant Center, Click on “My Progress” located at the top right. Scroll all the way down to where it says “Gift History” and click on the “Print List” button on the right-hand side of the screen.
