Introduced by Keller Williams in 2009, RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is a day to give back to the community. In 2014, Keller Williams Central Oklahoma celebrated RED Day with an annual 5K Run to raise money for local charities. Last year, we gave out $186,500 to our selected charities!
To date $466,500 has been raised and given to various charities in our community.
Support us by joining the race or becoming a corporate sponsor. Our goal this year is to have over 1,250 runners and to donate $250,000! Sponsors and race participants can vote for one of the charities selected to receive the funds raised through the run. Money will be distributed on a pro-rata basis based on the number of votes each charity receives. Come join us on Saturday, May 9th at 8:30 am and help make our 2020 RED Day Run the best one yet!
