Austin Gives Miles!

VELA 042 Austin Marathon Website Banner 5 thisone

VELA is so excited to be an Official Charity Partner for the 2018 Austin Marathon, Half Marathon and 5k through the Austin Gives Miles program!  All funds raised through Austin Gives Miles will support VELA's free hands-on courses and wraparound services for underserved families with children with special needs. We are so grateful to the Moody Foundation who is matching all donations towards VELA up to $10,000!

Here are the ways you can help:

  • "I don't run, I can't volunteer, but I can make a donation!"   Donate here to make a HUGE difference- the Moody Foundation is matching all donations made towards VELA’s team up to $10,000- that means anything we raise is worth double! 

  • "I don't run, but I can volunteer!" If you are not a runner you can volunteer with us- we need 50 volunteers to help us run our water table- you will get treats, love and superhero capes to give out water and high fives to the marathoners at mile 23!
    We need volunteers for 2 shifts: 7:30-11:30am and 11:30am-2:30!  Click here to register as a volunteer! 

Together, we can illuminate ability for the child, family and our community. We could not do this without you!  Call 512-850-8281 if you have any questions or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
