More than $24,000 was raised for the five 2019 Mankato Marathon Charities: Boys & Girls Club of Mankato, Committee Against Domestic Abuse (CADA), Leisure Education for Exceptional People (LEEP), Project for Teens, and Mankato Family YMCA – STRIDE.


In total, Boys & Girls Club raised $4,000; CADA raised $3,744; LEEP raised $3,116; Project for Teens raised $7,300; and STRIDE raised $6,553.


Each charity program chose four Champion Runners who received free race registrations for either the half or the full marathon. In addition to its Champion Runners, the charities raised supplementary dollars when runners opted to donate to any or all the charities upon registering for a Mankato Marathon race.
