The Official Charities of ALL Planet Ultra events are
Challenged Athletes Foundation and Death Valley Natural History Association.
A portion of the proceeds from our races will be donated to one or both of our two charities; and runners are encouraged to make a donation to one or both during online registration.
Established in 1997, CAF recognizes the athletic greatness inherent in all people with physical challenges and supports their athletic endeavors by providing grants for training, competition and equipment. Since 1994, CAF has raised more than $11 million – allowing them to satisfy thousands of funding requests from challenged athletes in all 50 states and dozens of countries. CAF’s mission is clear: give those with the desire to live active, competitive lifestyles every opportunity to compete in the sports they love. (Click the logo to make a donation.)
Death Valley National History Associations mission is preserving and interpreting the natural and cultural resources of the Death Valley region in cooperation with their government partners: Death Valley National Park and Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
