The Duluth Community School Collaborative works with students and their families at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School, Lincoln Park Middle School, and Denfeld High School. Our mission is to​ promote well-being and success for Duluth Public Schools students and families by co-creating, celebrating, and mobilizing for equitable educational experiences. We coordinate community partners and directly provide programming including academic enrichment, arts and cultural, recreation and physical activity, social-emotional learning, health, and basic needs, family and community engagement, and employment readiness.

Duluth Community School Collaborative runners commit to fundraising a minimum amount prior to race weekend, as outlined below:

  • Grandma’s Marathon — $500
  • Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon — $400

The fundraising goal must be reached before the runner may register for the race. If the minimum fundraising amount is not met, the remaining balance will be charged to the runner.


In addition to a 2024 entry to the Grandma’s Marathon weekend race of their choice, all Duluth Community School Collaborative charity runners will also receive recognition on DCSC website and social media.
