Vancouver marathon raises money for charity

The 2011 inaugural Vancouver USA Marathon raised nearly $9,000 in support of the Children’s Cancer Association, Fort Vancouver National Trust and the Parks Foundation of Clark County. Each agency will receive a donation of $2,521 from the race registration fees; also, an additional $1,177.29 in individual donations will be divided among the three nonprofit agencies.

Children’s Cancer Association is a Portland-based organization that serves seriously ill children and their families at no cost. The Fort Vancouver National Trust works toward recognition of Fort Vancouver National Site as a premier historic destination through preservation, education and advocacy.

And the Parks Foundation raises money for parks, trails, and recreational programs across Clark County. Money from the Vancouver Marathon will support the foundation’s efforts to seek and secure outside grants for special projects and programs.
