Steve Prefontaine

International Track Star - Running Legend

Prefontaine Supporters

Since our beginning almost four decades ago 100% of the profit generated from our events has gone toward scholarships and grants for athletes as well as cross country and track programs in Coos county. The Prefontaine Foundation believes this is a fundamental part of our mission to preserve and promote Steve's legacy and that he would be very proud of the nearly $500,000 that has been contributed to those beneficiaries.
  • Beginning in 2016 the Foundation approved implementation of a new "Supporter Program" to allow local businesses to partner with us in supporting these athletes, programs, and the Foundation's mission. The commitment of this support is on a three year cycle and may be extended at the supporter's request.
  • In 2016 we partnered with the Southwestern Oregon Boys & Girls Club, Tower Ford, and Tee Shirt Express to underwrite the costs of the Pre for Kids 5k race. This longstanding community event for 1st through 8th grade students takes place the day after our events. The underwriting provides access to the event without cost to all participants and includes an event t-shirt donated by Nike.
  • In 2017 the remainder of the "Supporter Program" was implemented to include underwriting of each event. Those "Partner Level" supporters include Banner Bank (2M Fun Walk), Les Schwab (HS 5k Race), and Pacific Properties (10k Race). Supporters also recognized at the "Partner Level" for their in-kind donations include Nike and Vend West Services.
  • The "Supporter Program" offers additional tiers of financial and in-kind support. At this time those supporters include Farr's True Value Hardware, Nasburg-Huggins Insurance, North Bend Medical Center, South Coast Hearing Center, and Golder's Napa Auto Parts.
We hope you will join us in thanking and supporting these businesses as they work to forward the legacy of Steve Prefontaine in our South Coast community.
