Each spring, VIC Radio hosts the 50 Hour Marathon, a weekend-long fundraising effort that benefits a local non-profit organization.
The annual event was first held in 1986.

The 34th annual 50 Hour Marathon was held Friday, April 16 – Sunday, April 18, 2021 and benefitted Ithaca Children’s Garden. It was hosted by Chloe Levy, Chris Masciarelli, Teagen Parker and Teddy Byrne.

This past October 2020, VIC Radio hosted a Virtual Benefit Concert to begin the countdown and support for the 2021 Marathon. 

Check out highlights from the concert featuring performances from Ithaca artists Abby Sullivan,
Vee Da Bee and Quail, along with Binghamton based SHE’S A SPY.

In April 2019, the annual event was recognized by the New York State Broadcasters Association with a “Serving New York” award, honoring the station’s commitment to the Ithaca community.

 The 2019 Marathon benefited the Suicide Prevention and Crisis Service of Tompkins County. Katie Siple, Will Carlson, Alys Derby & Finn McMillan battled the urge to sleep, accepted donations and played some great tunes. $3,619.73 was raised for SPCS.

The 2018 Marathon benefitted Cinemapolis, Ithaca’s non-profit, independent movie theater.

In 2017, $2,334.00 was raised for Friendship Donations Network.
