Non-Profit Organizations
that Benefit from the Eisenhower Marathon

The Eisenhower Marathon was created as a benefit to low-income families in Dickinson County, Kansas.  Annually the profits are divided among up to 24 nonprofits which also assist in running the event.  Those nonprofits then use the funds to help families according to the mission of each organization.  In helping those nonprofits, Viola Family members carry out the teachings of their grandparents, Ralph and Mattie Viola, who believed in giving to those less fortunate in need.
