"CreateAthon gives our team a chance to give back to our community and help organizations share their stories,” says Caitlin Ramsey, Trio’s CreateAthon coordinator. “Many nonprofits struggle for essential business-related funding and money for marketing is often mistakenly the first to be overlooked. We’re honored to offer our time and creative talents to help organizations that make such a positive impact on our community.”

CreateAthon was originally created by RIGGS advertising agency out of Columbia, South Carolina in 1997. Since the program’s expansion from a single market to an international effort in 2002, 85 agencies have joined the creative network, holding CreateAthon events in their cities. This effort has benefited more than 1,275 nonprofit organizations with approximately 3,200 projects valued at $16.1 million.
