Cause + Event Portland has proven to be a bright spot in the world of endurance events, with raising money for charities worldwide as its main focus.
The company donates 97-98% of its net proceeds to charity. The event has since expanded to Boise, Boston, and now offers a virtual race, allowing anyone, anywhere the ability to participate. “We’ve raised over $75,000 for over 200 charities,” states Amy Little, Founder and Race Director for Cause + Event.
After a short stint with another platform, Cause + Event came to Race IT in 2013. "We looked at so many different registration platforms, and decided on Race IT,” says Amy. “We get compliments all the time on our registration, and received no complaints at all with the mobile feature for 2015." Amy also expresses her appreciation for the customized reports feature, as well as her account manager, Melissa. "Melissa is our hero," she laughs. "We love her!"

Race IT shares a focus on customer service with the Cause + Event team, which is completely made up of volunteers. Former racers have even joined the race team to aid in promoting the events. "The more awareness we can get about our event, the more successful we can be at raising money for causes worldwide," Amy says.
Cause + Event Portland is a great example of how the love of running can be used to help someone in need, even on the other side of the world. We’ve enjoyed watching them grow as a client and, and can’t wait to see what is to come.
