Badwater 135 Fundraiser

Thank you for your support of our very own Board Member, Larry Orwin, who ran this year's Badwater 135, in support of Breakthrough's scholars!

Globally recognized as the world’s toughest foot race, the Badwater 135 Ultramarathon is a pure athletic challenge of athlete, shoes, and support crew versus a brutal 135-mile / 217km stretch of highway and a forty-eight hour time limit. From the start line in Death Valley to the finish line high on Mt. Whitney, this one-of-a-kind foot race offers the promise of a supremely personal achievement along with international accolades for those who rise to the occasion.


We are thrilled to report we broke the global fundraising record for Badwater 135, exceeding the $130K former record for funds raised. We raised $143K, with all funds going directly to support Breakthrough scholars, focused on health and wellness initiatives. We so appreciate your support on behalf of our 3,000+ scholars.


RAISED: $143K!
