Wineglass Charities

Wineglass is about more than just running. It's also about giving back to the communities in which the race runs. Last year, Wineglass Race Series awarded $136,000 to local non-profits that volunteer their help Wineglass Weekend. This brings the total donated to community groups to $940,000 since Wineglass began its donation policy in 2011.  

The four charities listed below are partially funded through the generous donations of our runners.



House of Hope

We've all been touched in some way by a critical health crisis. The Sayre House of Hope provides a home away from home for patients as well as family members of Guthrie Hospital. It is available to both outpatients with daily treatment regimens and family members of patients with an extended admittance. The House of Hope can provide a much-needed place to stay. The facility offers a semi-private community space together with private family accommodations. A dedicated group of volunteers at the Sayre House of Hope assist with duties that help keep the House of Hope running smoothly. Thanks to the House of Hope, patients can focus on their treatment and recovery with peace of mind.
