Run4LifeIndy and Scotty’s Brewhouse pair up for Haiti Relief

February 2010. In response to the current crisis in Haiti, Run4LifeIndy (R4LI) has set a goal to raise a minimum of $13,100 within 100 days prior to the 13.1 Indianapolis Mini Marathon. Fundraising began Saturday January 23rd and will continue through Saturday May 8th. All contributions will be donated to Pierre Garcon's association ‘Hoosiers Helping Haiti’. Twitter and Facebook pages have been set up where Mini participants and supporters of the cause may join the Run4LifeIndy team in this effort.

Scotty’s Brewhouse has joined the cause. Scotty’s Indianapolis North (3905 E. 96th St.) and Scotty’s Downtown Indianapolis (1 Virginia Ave.) locations currently have collection jars at their host stands where customers can donate directly to the association.

“Immediately following the earthquake in Haiti, we received multiple requests from our staff wanting to do something, anything, to contribute to the Haiti Relief,” said Amber Martin, Scotty’s Brewhouse Beverage and Promotions Director.

Want to donate in a different way? Scotty’s Brewhouse is also selling t-shirts for $20 with $5 of every t-shirt sale going directly to the American Red Cross to support aide to Haiti. You can purchase the shirt at any Scotty’s Brewhouse location or online at

“This was a global crisis that needed help and attention,” said Scotty Wise, owner of Scotty’s Brewhouse. “If we can’t be there to physically help, this is the next best way for us to get involved.”

Run4LifeIndy has also partnered with Scotty's Brewhouse to host a Pre-Mini Pasta Tweetup at the downtown Indianapolis location on May 7th at 6:00 pm. Scotty's has offered to donate a percentage of the proceeds from this event to the cause.

Run4LifeIndy was founded as a fund raising campaign to benefit the less fortunate. Co-founders Brooke Randolph and Suzanne Zaleski are participating in this year's Indianapolis Mini Marathon on May 8th along with many Scotty’s Brewhouse employees. To find out more log on to or
