Race To Robie Creek Fun Run Info About Our Team's Participation

The annual Race To Robie Creek has come and gone yet again this year and 2023’s race was a real barn burner, or should we say “dance floor burner”? The theme this year was “stayin’ alive” a disco-fueled throwback to 1970’s style pop culture. Yeah baby! Why are we talking about Robie Creek in today’s blog, you may ask? Well, that’s because our amazing staff participated in this year’s race and had a blast doing it and we wanted to take some time to showcase their accomplishment and celebrate them for their support of Idaho sports races and outdoor activities in our community. In the comments below and on our social media pages, please feel free to share your experiences and thoughts about this year’s race or any Robie Creek race of years past. We can’t wait to hear from you!


Blind Appeal’s Team Enjoys Supporting The Community

We love helping and participating in our local community any chance we get. While it is definitely fulfilling and excellent to donate money or homegoods to local charities and shelters, it’s also fun to physically and monetarily participate in a local cause for good, like the Race To Robie Creek. We had a team of six Blind Appeal members participate this year and everyone had an absolute blast (once the race was done, of course!). We love that we get to have fun and do something for a good cause alongside our fellow community members along the race path. 


What Exactly Are The Sail Toads? AKA A History Of Robie Creek

So, the Sail Toads are the main charitable organization behind the Robie Creek race. They are named after a semi-mythical creature also called a sail toad that, as legend would have it, lives in the Rocky Canyon through which the race winds. This charity helps to organize and run the race each year while also donating huge amounts of the proceeds to fantastic charities like these listed below. We definitely are grateful to the organization for helping to organize this event each year and for all of the good that they have managed to do for our community and our country by donating over 1.2 million dollars to various charities. In 2022 they were able to donate $51,000 alone! Here are some of the charities which are the recipients of the generous proceeds from this race:
