The Mankato Marathon is seeking three new benefactors to round out the 2019 Charities Program.

The application will be reviewed by a committee, and charities will be announced prior to race registration opening December 1. The charities must recruit four Champion Runners who will fundraise on its behalf and run in either the full or the half marathon.

Visit Mankato’s Joelle Bauman says it ‘s a great opportunity for a local charity to receive extra funds.

In 2018, the Mankato Marathon Charity Program raised nearly $25,000 for its five chosen local charities. Applications are due November 19. .
