Giving Back

The Port Angeles Marathon Association (PAMA) is a non-profit 501c4.

The Port Angeles Marathon Association gives back to the communities of Sequim and Port Angeles in many ways including offering the Kids Marathon program to all Clallam County elementary schools and working with civic groups, service clubs and school teams and programs by offering cash donations in return for volunteer time. Over the past 5 years, PAMA donated more than $75,000 to local organizations. Many runners align with a charity organization and gather pledges. Running for a charity not only helps raise funds for a good cause, it also helps motivate and inspire runners because they feel accountable to their sponsors and organization.
