Donate to a Runner or School

Here's how it works:

  • Parents, teachers, students, staff or community members sign up to be a Charity Hero with TEAM NEF and commit to rasing at least $203.
  • Select your FAVORITE SCHOOL - Half the funds you raise go to your school and half support NEF-funded district-wide programs. You can also choose to have all the funds you raise go to NEF. 
  • Running for NNHS or NCHS? Half the funds you raise go to the school-based team, activity, department or club of your choice!
  • Use your Charity Hero discount to save on your race entry fee. 
  • Share your fundraising page with family and friends to raise money. 
  • Come together on race day for a fun morning of fitness, positive vibes and a shared commitment to our students' success!

In 2023, TEAM NEF raised more than $60,000 for the students of Naperville 203, helping to bring great ideas to life, removing barriers to learning, and supporting each school's unique community. 

Grab your sneakers, set a fitness goal, and raise funds for your favorite school!
