YOURSELF AND OTHERS
GRAND FORKS LIKE NEVER BEFORE
OUR YOUTH AND COMMUNITY
By participating in the Grand Forks Marathon Weekend, you not only strengthen yourself but also take an active part in connecting with the community – go you!
Did you know that by participating in one of our races you are supporting local student athletes? Our mission from day one has been to support active lifestyles for kids of all ages in the Greater Grand Forks Community. We do this by removing financial barriers to help our area stay active by providing complimentary race entries to Special Olympics of North Dakota athletes and partners, as well as donating our net proceeds for youth to these three awesome 501(c)3 charities:
Grand Forks Public Schools Foundation for Education – Wild Hog Fund
Help provide students of low-income families with necessary supplies so they can participate in extra-curricular physical activities at school.
Grand Forks YMCA - Partner of Youth Scholarships
Promote kids being involved in the active programs that foster better health and positive behavior by cultivating values, skills and relationships.
Grand Forks Parks & Recreation Foundation
Support youth groups and projects, which focus on risky behavior prevention and promote healthful decisions and opportunities.
