Community Partnerships

The Children’s Cabinet

    • This year marks the 23rd anniversary of the partnership between the Children’s Cabinet and the Wilbur May Foundation. The Wilbur May Foundation has been bringing special shaped balloons to the event each year to give tethered rides for kids at the Children’s Cabinet. Thank you for bringing smiles to our event for over two decades!
    • The Great Reno Balloon Race is involved in several fundraising activities to help support the Children’s Cabinet. Poster sales and pre-event activities are just some of the ways we have showcased this amazing organization. Look for a special shape balloon, sponsored by Macy’s giving tethered rides on the field each day with donations going back to the Children’s Cabinet!

Moms On The Run

    • On Saturday, September 8th, The Great Reno Balloon Race is partnering with Moms On The Run to Paint The Park Pink! 
    • Come help us support breast cancer awareness at the event and wear your best shade of pink. Don’t forget to stop by the Moms On The Run booth to hear all about their organization and get some fun pink goodies! 

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada

    • 2013 marked the first year of the partnership between The Great Reno Balloon Race and the Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada.
    • Look for them on the Sunday of the event participating in scavenger hunts, recruitment and trading S.W.A.P.S with our pilots (otherwise known as Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere)!
