The 2017 Oberlin Mile  

  Benefitting YOUR Community, YOUR Schools, YOUR Kids  

Support the Oberlin Mile

All support for the Oberlin Mile, whether donations, sponsorships, or scholarships is tax-deductible through the Decatur Area Development Fund, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization.

You may GO DIRECTLY TO THE EVENT REGISTRATION SITE, download the form to the right, or review the options below and select the buttons to the right.  Thanks.


We welcome your donation. If sponsorship is not your thing, then please consider a donation of any size. All net proceeds will be awarded by percentage to all school Athletic And Physical Education Programs represented according to their respective registered student participants, whether runners, walkers or volunteers. 

You can start right here:

SCHOLARSHIPS                                                  Minimum $30

If you wish to publicly or anonymously provide registration fees (and optionally a T-shirt) for a school-aged runner who would otherwise not be able to participate, we welcome your gift. Please plan a minimum of $30.00 per scholarship, and when you write your check, please designate it as “Scholarship”. Scholarships will be matched to those student runners who register requesting a Scholarship.  Theirs will be effectively a no-charge registration, thanks to you.
