Charities - Mankato Marathon

In 2020, the Mankato Marathon is striving to give back to the community that has so generously supported our races. In addition to having four champion runners raising pledges, these five programs have the potential to raise additional dollars through registrations.

Each program will choose four Champion Runners who will raise money for his or her respective charity.

In addition to its Champion Runners, the five charities have the potential to raise additional funds through race registrations. Runners will be able to donate to any, or all, of the charities when they register for any of the races at the 2020 Mankato Marathon.

The Charities Program helped raise nearly $25,000 in 2019 for participating charities.
