Who We Are
Red Frog Events is an event production company and pioneer of the Experiential Entertainment Industry, recognized for its award-winning company culture. Since 2007, the company has developed innovative brands including the Warrior Dash obstacle race series, Firefly Music Festival, and Chicago Beer Classic. Red Frog also provides event services ranging from food and beverage to its ticketing platform, EventSprout.
We are event planners, and we understand the unique challenges that Event Organizers face when planning an event. Beyond helping you sell tickets, we can offer consulting services because we’ve been there – and we’re happy to help.
Our Culture and Values
While all of our employees come from different backgrounds, we have a few things in common: we’re kind-hearted, team players to the core. We value the ability to lead, innovate, and laugh when thrown into new situations every day. Red Froggers focus on creating remarkable work, word-class events, and lasting friendships with a team of hard-working people that have a common goal in mind.
In 2010, Red Frog Events formed a partnership with St. Jude to raise funds through our first event, Great Urban Race. As Red Frog has grown, so has our relationship with St. Jude. In 2013, we committed to fundraising $25 million toward the opening of the “St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center”. To date, Red Frog has raised over $13.5 million toward the center, which opened officially on December 14, 2015, and donates 1% of its annual proceeds to the Hospital.
Proton therapy is the most advanced form of radiation technology available to patients because it allows doctors to precisely target cancerous cells with high doses of radiation while sparing nearby healthy cells and vital organs located beyond the tumor. Proton therapy offers a great benefit for children with brain tumors and other cancers treated with radiation therapy, as it reduces harm to the child’s developing body and lessens the risk of secondary tumors later in life.
