Runnin O’ the Green will donate $25,000 to Elks Club’s Camp Grassick again this year, said Larry Knoblich, founder of the event.

The annual pub crawl that took place March 18 is a fundraiser for Camp Grassick and people affected by cancer.

Knoblich said he received a few donations on the day of and after the Run, along with the registration fees. A couple who held a garage party on the Run route on Saturday donated $1,475, he said.

Iverson Construction Inc., which provided volunteer designated drivers the day of the Run, donated $1,700, Knoblich said.

Megan Fossum of Wildside Creations also donated $1,500, Knoblich said.

“The community has been so generous,” he said.

Knoblich said he also has money set aside to donate to cancer patients as well.

The final count of registrations show over 1,800 people participated in the event, Knoblich said.

 

An earlier version of this story contained an error. The correct donation amount from the couple holding a party on the Run route was $1,475, not $1,425.
