Cellcom Green Bay Marathon donates to local charities
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon is making a difference for local charities.
The organization donated $133,000 to ASPIRO, Green Bay YMCA and Special Olympics program Wednesday.
All charities send volunteers to work the marathon.
Over the last 18 years, the event has donated more than $1.3 million to 18 charities that provide volunteers for the event.
Organizers say the race is more than just a race.
"We have never been just a foot race, we were born to be much, much more from our very first days and we started this race with the intention of always being bigger than a foot race," said Green Bay marathon board president, Brighid Riordan.
Next year's marathon is scheduled for next May.
