Event Information


HUMAN RACE May 7th 2022
Santa Rosa, CA

Spearheaded by Ella’s little sister, Cate, we are participating in the HUMAN RACE!

10 years ago, the Ella Bisbee Fund was the first major seed-funder with a legacy gift to the Children’s Museum of Sonoma County to create “Ella’s Art Studio.” In celebration of this milestone, her friends and family once again are participating in The Human Race!

Our primary wish is to create an opportunity for friends and family of Ella to gather together. Whether you knew Ella personally, or simply know her story, we invite you to join us to celebrate her life and the dedicated Art space that has reached more than 500,000 children in our community to date. Funds raised will benefit Ella’s Art Studio by supporting an art docent position and providing much-needed art supplies.

The Loving Ella team has met our goal,
thanks to so many of you!


It’s not too late to donate, or to join us for the walk.
Just show up at our booth at Old Courthouse Square (look for green and purple balloons)
between 7 and 7:45 am on race day. Registration is not required - wear green or purple.
See you there!!

How can you participate with us?

Here are a few ways to show your support!

Walk with Us & Raise Funds for our Team LOVING ELLA

If you plan on raising money for the Ella Bisbee Fund, register for the event and create your own fundraising page. You can then pass along your page to those who may want to support your effort!


  • Select: Individual
  • Select Team: Loving Ella
  • Select fundraising organization: ELLA BISBEE FUND - If you would like funds to go specifically to the Art Studio at the Children’s Museum, scroll down to Ella Bisbee Fund when choosing beneficiary, and DO NOT Select Children’s Museum at the top of the Scroll Down menu. 


There is a $45 fee for registration if you want a chip and fundraising page. However, you do not need to register everyone in your family, unless you each want a time chip. For example, I registered once and our entire family will raise funds through one fundraising page.
