Wineglass Gives Back
Annually the Wineglass Marathon gives back to over 50 organizations. Runners have the opportunity to support three important organizations when registering.
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
Food Bank of the Southern Tier
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier is committed to creating a future without hunger where access to healthy food by all is recognized as fundamental to the well-being and success of individuals and the foundation of a strong, vibrant society.
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier distributes food and other grocery products to people in need through a network of more than 150 partner agencies including food pantries, meal kitchens, shelters, and other hunger relief organizations in Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Tompkins Counties. The Food Bank also administers several direct service food distribution programs including the BackPack Program™ and Mobile Food Pantry. The Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and a regional agency of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rochester.
Wineglass Marathon Scholarship Fund
Continuing the running tradition that the Wineglass Marathon has fostered for 35 years two scholarships have been established for each of the three high schools that the course runs through. Starting in Bath, NY and the Bath Haverling High School to the mid point where the Half Marathon starts and the Campbell Savona High School, to the finish on Corning's historic Market Street and the Corning Painted Post High School.
In addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, Ainsley's Angels of America aims to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. Serving as advocates to providing education and participating as active members in local communities, we believe everyone deserves to be included. Your Wineglass Marathon donation will help purchase "chairs" so more can participate through Ainsley's Angels of the Finger Lakes.
The First Tee of Corning is a youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after-school and in-school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference. Your Wineglass Marathon donation will allow more boys and girls to participate in the program who otherwise would not be able to.
