Team Green Inc, dba Reindeer Fun Run is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 100% of the proceeds of the Reindeer Fun Run go to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sandhills.

The Reindeer Fun Run is a FUN community event for everyone from serious runners to recreational walkers, families, and pets. Join in the holiday cheer with the 5k Fun Run/Walk, 12ks of Christmas and the Kids 800m Egg Nog Jog. The Reindeer Fun Run is a DBA of Team Green, Inc. a 501(c)(3) Charity established by Kate and David Petsolt

Mission: The mission of the Reindeer Fun Run is to bring the community together to have fun and raise money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sandhills, Inc.. No contribution, whether time, money, services or goods is too great or too small. We hope that you will join our pursuit to care for our community. In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
