The official benefiting charity of the Divas Half Marathon® & 5K Series is the Forever Young Foundation.
The Forever Young Foundation was established on October 22, 2012 by a group of colleagues and friends who were touched by one individual whose life was too short but so very inspiring. This young man was the Course Director for the Divas Half Marathon Series from 2010 to 2012 and this young man taught us all that life is what you make of it by wanting more and working hard to achieve that. The Forever Young Foundation wants to identify other young people, who like Jake Young, have that fire in their hearts, that impeccable work ethic but lack financial support to further their education...he was meant to have taken on the world and conquer it. The Forever Young Foundation wants to make sure other young men and women, who share in his dream, have the right backing to indeed take on that challenge and conquer.

The Divas Half Marathon® & 5K Series is also proud to support local and national charities making a difference in women's lives.
In 1990, the change of developing breast cancer for a woman in Long Island was one in nine. Today it is one in eight; in parts of Suffolk County one in seven. Progress has been made but not enough. This is an uphill battle yet we believe we can win.
Finally there is a place to go in Long Island to avoid the profound isolation, despair and fear often felt by people with cancer. At Hewlett House, people with cancer and their families can become involved in networking and receive support from people going through similar experiences.
