The Wineglass Marathon Supporting Charities
Wineglass Marathon Scholarship Fund
Continuing the running tradition that the Wineglass Marathon has fostered for 39 years, eight scholarships in the amount of $1,000.00 each have been established to benefit students from the three high schools that the course runs past. 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.
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 patients of Guthrie Hospital, during such a time. 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.
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. They teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running. Each year more girls are able to participate in the program that otherwise wouldn't be able to due to the generous donations of the Wineglass runners.
The First Tee 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.
