Northern Lights Foundation runners commit to fundraising a minimum amount prior to race weekend, as outlined below:

  • Grandma’s Marathon — $500
  • Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon — $500
  • William A. Irvin 5K — $250


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.
