Internationally, Night Run Chattanooga 2016 will support the non-profit organization Mifalot in Israel. Mifalot uses sports as a platform for social change. The organization focuses on mutual understanding, recognition, and acceptance in the community as well as self-actualization of one’s individual potential.
In Chattanooga, a portion of the proceeds will assist Operation Get Active (OGA). In collaboration with the Chattanooga Football Club Foundation, OGA is a health initiative that uses soccer to encourage youth to live active and healthy lifestyles. OGA launched in March at several Hamilton County public schools, City of Chattanooga recreational centers, and private community centers.
