Minnehaha marathons

Students, teachers and alums raise money for African water project

In two races run this year, the Oct. 6 Twin Cities Marathon and the Oct. 26 Monster Dash, Minnehaha raised close to $19,000 of their goal of $20,000. Running the Twin Cities Marathon to support World Vision, all 10 runners finished the race.

“It wasn’t about placing well but about having fun and raising money,” said Vice Principal Mike DiNardo, who ran the marathon.

Through the World Vision program, $50 provides one person with water for life. This means that the Minnehaha participants of the races raised enough money for 380 people to have water for life in Zambia (pledges were made per mile).
