MANKATO (TEC News), December 24 – Donating to local charities is one of the ways the Mankato Marathon gives back to the community. Their Charity Program has raised over $17,000 in the past. This year they plan to build the program to include four. Charities may apply online at mankatomarathon.com. Applications are due by January 10.
Here is how it works:
• Each qualifying charity would be allowed to get up to four guaranteed entries into the full and/or half marathon
• Each entry the charity receives would require them to have a Champion Runner to run in the event
• Each charity runner chosen would be required to fund raise a minimum of $500.00
In addition to the Champion Runner efforts, the Mankato Marathon will help raise donations for the selected charities by allowing runners to make donations through registration both online and in paper registration format.
