Run for Odyssey

Odyssey School has been chosen as one of the charities in Austin to benefit from the 2018 Austin Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K as a part of the Austin Gives Miles program! This is the seventh year we have participated. We want to make it memorable and we need your help. Join #TeamOdysseySchool today!

Here’s the “Rundown” on how to help Odyssey School reach the finish line!



When you sign up for the 5K, half-marathon or marathon, be sure to select Team Odyssey School in the Join a Team section of the registration form. Also, please select Odyssey School in the Austin Gives Miles section on page 2 of the registration form.

After you register, please follow the prompts to set up your fundraising page on CrowdRise. You will receive an email from CrowdRise with instructions on completing your fundraising page.



You don’t have to be in the race to raise money for Odyssey School!

Option 1: Simply make your own page through the Join the Team button on CrowdRise and share it on social media so your friends and family can also support Odyssey School. Be sure to let everyone know why you love Odyssey School and why they should too!

Option 2: If you don’t want to create a fundraising page, make a one-time donation to Odyssey School. Please consider supporting Odyssey School to help make us eligible for potential matching grant funds!
