CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV)-- While regular registrations for the Cooper River Bridge Run are sold out, those willing to fork over a little extra money for a good cause can still take part.

Twelve hundred charity bibs are available for $150 a pop and every penny goes to help a non-profit organization.

A dozen charities are part of the Bridge Run's Charity Connection. When you register for your bib, you pick a charity and your money goes to that organization. Entry to the Bridge Run is free.

"It really goes to a good cause and it's deductible," Assistant Director Joanna Jackson. "It's a charity donation."

If you want to feel good about yourself, not just for completing the Bridge Run but for helping a charity in need as well, time is running out. Just like with regular registration, the bibs are selling fast.

"They're going pretty quickly. We've probably sold a couple hundred now," said Jackson. "As time gets closer it'll pick up."

Charity bibs available include:
• American Diabetes Association
• Semper Fi Fund
• Water Missions International
• MUSC Childrens Hospital Fund
• Alzheimer's Association
• Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Lowcountry
• Louie's Kids
• The Charleston Miracle League
• The American Cancer Society
• The Lowcountry Center for Prevention of Child Abuse
• Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy
• Camp Happy Days

Running the bridge and helping others aren't the only payoffs. Organizers have added extra events to make the Bridge Run more than just, well, a bridge run.

"We're not just a race, we're a whole festival," said Jackson. "We have taste of the Bridge Run, we have boat rides, we have concerts after the show. It's a really fun event to come to. It's not just about running."
