Fremont Lake in Sublette County, WY


Building a stronger community through impactful giving and advocacy for Sublette County nonprofits.


The Pinedale Half Marathon and 10K began in 2004 as a way to unite our community by building camaraderie and promoting fitness. The annual event takes place every September in Pinedale, Wyoming and participants can either run or walk a half marathon, 10K, or a 1 mile fun run. Each race is concluded with a free community BBQ that typically serves more than 700 people.

In 2022, the focus of the event was shifted from a one-day race into a 3 month fundraising campaign for the nonprofits in Sublette County, Wyoming. A portion of each race entry was designated to the participants' nonprofit of choice, and additional donations to those participating nonprofits were accepted. There was also a pool of funds from generous donors that matched all donations, and with the 2022  inaugural campaign, we raised $48,956 for 30 different nonprofits here in Sublette County, Wyoming.

With this change arose the need for a broader scope of fundraising, community awareness and organization, therefore Foundation 23 was born. We are a community foundation here to strengthen and build the Sublette County community through fundraising and advocacy for our local nonprofits.


A race along the banks of Fremont Lake is how we got started and it will continue to be our culminating event for our annual giving campaign. In 2024, the race was renamed to the Race to Raise, and a 5K distance was added.


We look forward to greatly increasing the funds donated to participating nonprofits over the future years and we thank you for helping us with that goal.
