Our Next Charity Partner: Wildlife Protection Solutions

We come from different places and have different opinions on lots of different issues. We disagree, we debate, and we argue. But there are some issues where pretty much everyone agrees. Poaching wild animals is WRONG! Intentionally destroying ecosystems is WRONG! BUT… Catching bad guys is GOOD! Potterhead Running Club is thrilled to announce that our charity partner for the next PHRC event is Wildlife Protection Solutions​! Wildlife Protection Solutions is a team of technology experts seeking to enhance conservation […]

Our Next Charity Partner: Music & Memory!

I was four years old and sitting in a warm, loving kitchen in a small house in Neillsville, Wisconsin. My grandmother made me fish sticks and sat at the table talking with me while I ate. It was a perfect moment. It’s one of my earliest childhood memories…and it’s the only one I have of my grandmother before the Alzheimer’s and dementia put her in a nursing home for more than 10 years. Every other memory of my grandmother is […]

Our Next Charity Partners: The Harry Potter Alliance; Transfiguring Adoption; The Protego Foundation!

  June 26th, 2015. The day everything changed. Our organization was tiny. The Great Hall didn’t exist. There were no Common Rooms. We were just 15 months old, with a mere 4,086 likes on Facebook, when we got a lot of attention in one amazing moment.

Our Next Charity Partner: Project Purple!

First: a brief story.⁣ ⁣ It was just another Thursday morning.

Our day was shattered with the news that we had lost our beloved Half-Blood Prince, Alan Rickman. We immediately held a run in his honor, but we spent the next several weeks looking for a way to […]

Our Next Charity Partner: RODS Racing!

Hogwarts Running Club has definitely done #somuchgood over the years. We’ve helped the homeless, we’ve supported refugees, we’ve put legs on amputees, and we’ve eradicated a debilitating disease from an entire country. But this time it’s different. This time we’re not just going to change lives; we’re literally going to save lives. Hogwarts Running Club is humbled to announce the charity partner for this event is RODS: Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome! Their mission is simple: they promote the adoption of orphans […]

Our 2018 Event Five Charity Partner: All Star Code

The Muggle-world is in the midst of an innovation revolution. New devices, applications and other innovations are being created every day…almost like magic. But there is one group that is getting left behind in learning the skills to “cast” that magic: increasing professional access and STEM education for young men of color is vital to the overall future of the tech sector as well as minority communities. Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to announce that the charity partner for Event […]
