Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend runners raised more than a million dollars for charity in 2017 - by running on charity teams, undertaking individual fundraising efforts, or supporting Twin Cities In Motion's charity partners.
In this episode, you'll meet two members of the Twin Cities charity running community: Dave Boese, a Plymouth resident who has singlehandedly raised more than $21,000 for a Mexican youth charity, and Brady Gervais, who leads Children's Minnesota's charity running program, Team Superstars.
Fundraising runners are vital members of the running community - they're people who make the greater community and the world a better place. Raising money for a cause close to one's heart isn't difficult, is deeply fulfilling, and makes what can seem like a selfish activity radiate good across the community and provide additional satisfaction.
