Bloomsday Charity

The 2024 Bloomsday Charity of Choice is: Shriners Hospital

Shriners Children’s is a unique pediatric healthcare system with a reputation for finding answers and giving families hope. Since opening our first hospital in 1922, it has been our mission to provide innovative, high-quality comprehensive care, conduct research to advance medical care options, and provide educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Why does Bloomsday Support a Charity

The Bloomsday Charity of Choice stands as a beacon of community support and compassion. Each year, Bloomsday selects a noteworthy charity to be the focal point of its philanthropic endeavors, channeling the collective generosity of participants and supporters toward a meaningful cause. The Charity of Choice not only reflects Bloomsday’s commitment to fostering positive change but also serves as a rallying point for the running community to make a lasting impact beyond the racecourse.

Application

The Lilac Bloomsday Association (LBA) designates an official charity or non-profit partner for the upcoming Lilac Bloomsday Run, offering vital support and visibility to the selected organization. Charities benefit from participant donations during Bloomsday registration, product sales, and a complimentary booth at the Bloomsday Trade Show. To be considered, charities submit a concise letter by July 31, detailing their history, mission, and proposed collaborative efforts with Bloomsday. The LBA’s Charity Committee reviews applications and presents its recommendations to the Board of Directors.

While unable to support all deserving charities, Bloomsday aims to provide an annual boost to one official charity, contributing to the greater community. For inquiries or submissions, contact Bethany Lueck or call (509) 838-1579.
