The run is a project dedicated to bringing motivated people together to have fun in costume and raise money for community needs. Since 2012, thousands of participants dressed as Waldo or Wenda have raised more than $175,000 for local nonprofits. Beneficiaries include the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, Trails and Open Space Coalition and Waldo Canyon Firefighters Relief Fund at Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
