Marathon raises funds for St. Tim’s School

They were off and running once again at the annual St. Timothy’s School Marathon on Saturday as about 75 bikers and walkers participated in the nine-mile effort to raise funds for non-public education. And a group almost as large took part in activities for children from preschool to third grade inside the school gym.

This year’s goal was set at $12,000 and it was announced at the start of Saturday’s event that over $10,000 had already been raised to date.

Keeping participants safe were members of the Knights of Columbus, who escorted Marathon participants, along with deputies from the Wright County Sheriff’s Department.

Guiding this year’s event were Marathon co-chairs Sue Borell and Jana Marquette, Childrens’ Activities chair Cyrene Bastien and Luncheon chair Stacey Sissel.
