The Heartland Half Marathon in September was a success. In fact it was such a success that DC Multisport (the parent company that puts on the Marathon) delivered a check this morning to the Philip R. Dawkins Heart & Vascular Center at Memorial Hospital.
Kevin Manley with DC Multisport said that the marathon had 603 runners in this year’s event and took the time to thank the sponsors, committee members and volunteers that helped put on the event.
DC Multisport is a non-profit organization started 18 months ago to promote health and wellness in Dubois County while giving back to the community.
The check amount was $13,062.00 and was presented to representatives of the Heart & Vascular Center along with representatives of Memorial Hospital this (Wednesday) morning.
The 2014 Heartland Half Marathon will be held Labor Day weekend and the committee is considering moving the marathon to Saturday rather than Sunday.
