Ruthless Good is not your ordinary fundraiser. It’s part scavenger hunt, part amazing race and it’s all for a good cause. It’s an opportunity for students, families, friends and work colleagues to flex their competitive muscle while making a difference in the lives of Austin’s most vulnerable residents.
Good news: Ruthless Good is for everyone! Last year more than 60 teams ranging from co-workers, families (even a grandmother and her grandkids) to huge groups of friends out to have a good time. We believe everyone is Ruthlessly Good so everyone is welcome and encouraged to come have fun, while doing good for our community.
Last year Ruthless Good raised more than $100,000 and one hundred percent of those funds were put toward breaking the cycle of poverty in Austin. Ruthless Good supports housing for single parents struggling to find employment, quality child care for low-income working families, ESL classes for working families, nutritious food for young children who are food-insecure, mental health services for struggling parents and caregivers, a warm line for individuals who need help with basic needs like rent or utilities and so much more.
