The Akron Marathon has partnered with ten local charities to assist with raising awareness and fundraising in conjunction the Blue Line Charity Program. Charities may receive promotional and financial support by meeting certain requirements, including number of volunteers, number of charity affiliated runners, and money raised in conjunction with the 2014 event.
As a Marathon partner, our goal is to reach the "Record Setters" level and raise $5,000 for the Camp Christopher Campership Fund. All donations will will help us reach our goal. If we do this the Akron Marathon will donate $1,250 to benefit camperships at Camp Christopher.
All proceeds from this event will go to help fund scholarships to Camp Christopher, a hallmark program of Catholic Charities. Economic factors continue to drive up the number of applications for camp scholarships. The need has never been greater. .
