How Does It Work?
Mankato Marathon 2013 Charity Program
In 2013, the Mankato Marathon is striving to give back to the community that has so generously supported our races. Through the new charity program, 501(c)(3) charities could apply to receive a limited number of guaranteed entries into the Mankato Marathon Half Marathon and Full Marathon. Guaranteed entries provide accepted charities with both a significant fundraising opportunity and great exposure for their cause at this event.
Here is how it works:
- Each qualifying charity would be allowed to get up to three guaranteed entries into the full 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
- Therefore, if the charity receives three entries, the champion runners all together would raise a minimum of $1,500.00 total that would go directly to the charity.
2013 Participating Charities
In 2013, the Mankato Marathon is striving to give back to the community that has so generously supported our races. This year three charities including Girls on the Run, BackPack Food Program and Project for Teens have been chosen. In addition to having champion runners raising pledges, the three programs have potential to raise additional dollars through registrations. Registrants will be able to elect to donate to any or all of the programs when they register for a Mankato Marathon race.
