In 2012, the Meridian Marathon raised and distributed $17,500 for the Alzheimer’s Association and local charities. This was accomplished through the first LEO Run to Remember, Meridian Marathon & ½ Marathon. Prizes for the top male & female runners in the Marathon and ½ Marathon were small art quilts donated by a local artist & quilter.
The second running is scheduled for November 16, 2013 and promises to be bigger and better. In conjunction with the race, we are conducting an art quilt competition & auction.
Go check them out, it's for a good cause & they're pretty cool!
