Reach Partners will join the community to show support for hundreds of charity runners who will race for a reason with our donation on May 5, 2014 during Marathon Monday, a 24 hour-give-a-thon.
While both of us are participating during Marathon Week, we feel it’s important to show financial support for some of the many charities who change the face of the Fargo-Moorhead community. The give-a-thon is an opportunity to raise awareness about the organizations, identify new donors, and secure more money for missions the charities serve. The 24-hour time frame seems like a sprint, but success requires a marathon effort before, during, and especially after to build on the accomplishments of the Fargo Marathon Charity Teams.
Thanks to the Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation for their work in developing the infrastructure for giving during such a large and all-encompassing community wide event as Marathon Monday. The Fargo Marathon has set a goal of raising $200,000 for the 30 Fargo Marathon Charity Teams that go the distance to alleviate hunger, find cures, provide underprivileged kids with shoes, shelter and much needed support.
