The Shuffle Gives Back Program allows participants to join  Charity Teams and raise dollars for the causes they care about! More than $30,000 is granted out each year through the Shuffle Gives Back, and at least 50% of Shamrock Shuffle participants register on a Charity Team. The Northern Cincinnati Foundation was established as at the grass-roots level; we are so proud to continue that legacy through the Shuffle Gives Back, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to participate in philanthropy. 


There must be a minimum of 15 team members in order for the charity to receive a grant from Shuffle Gives Back. Grants will be made in the amount of $150 for the first 15 members and continue at $10/member thereafter.
2 child registrations = 1 team member


We offer Group Pick-up for our Charity Teams. This request, with a list of participants (first and last name), must be submitted to by Wednesday, September 8th.
If you choose this option, please communicate with your team to avoid any confusion and ensure members have not made plans to pick-up their own packets.

Group Pick-up is entirely optional.


The Square on race morning, it is THE PLACE to be! Teams who request a Team Camp will receive a spot along Charity Team Row at the Block Party (near the clock tower and on the way to the starting line) where you can gather as a team, distribute information about the charity or organization you’re supporting, and display your Shuffle Spirit!

  • Team Camps will be approximately 10x10
  • Teams may bring their own tent, table and chairs OR we can arrange rentals for you that will be placed at your Team Camp on race morning. Cost: tent $60, table $8, chairs $4
  • Reservations for Team Camps and rentals be made by August 20th
  • Teams are not permitted to sell anything at the event
  • Team Camps must be set up on site by 6:45 AM race morning
  • Vehicles should be unloaded from the parking lot behind The Square or the Library parking lot. You cannot leave vehicles in these areas for the duration of the event.
  • A site map will be provided closer to race day indicating where your team camp will be located.

Payment for rentals will be due to the Community Foundation by September 1st.


As you can imagine, the Shamrock Shuffle requires many volunteers to run smoothly. We’re asking our Charity Teams to help that effort by providing 2 volunteers each as part of your eligibility to earn a grant for your charity or organization. Volunteers must be committed by August 27th.
