The Shamrock Run is excited to partner with Rebuilding Together Baton Rouge. Sponsorship proceeds from the 2020 race will go toward supporting this vital organization that helped rebuild homes following the 2016 flood and continues its mission today. Each RTBR project is different and relies on community support to complete its work. YOU will have an opportunity to donate as well when you register for the 2020 Shamrock Run. Please help us support this great organization!
