Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Monday marks the beginning of Fargo's marathon week and if you're not running don't worry, there's another way to get involved.
It's Marathon Monday!
A 24-hour event trying to bring in $200,000 for 30 charities in our community all through online donations.
Some charities have running teams, others just individuals out to represent a good cause and raise some money while they're at it.
Similar to Giving Hearts Day, Marathon Monday is spearheaded by the Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation as well as the Fargo Marathon.
Nate Hendrickson/ TNT Kids Fitness Dir. of Operations: “Donations fill a lot of gaps is a lot of nonprofits business and it allows us to improve programming, expand programming, and maintain.”
Mark Knutson/ Fargo Marathon Exec. Director: “Marathon Monday is also important because it gives the people who are not part of that process a chance to contribute to those charities on their own.”
Marathon Monday ends at Midnight. You can donate by logging on to Fargo Marathon.com and clicking the donate link.
