CrowdRise is an impact site started by actor and philanthropist, Edward Norton, that is designed to make fundraising for the Mad Marathon really easy and fun. All three of these marathon fundraising charities have registered with the site to raise money through runners of the event. However, even if someone is not running the race, donations can be made on line at the CrowdRise site by linking to: http://www.crowdrise.com/madmarathon.
