2019 Citizens Race 2 Raise 5K Fundraiser

Citizens Bank Minnesota held their 5th annual Race 2 Raise 5K on Saturday, May 18, 2019. This was a running/walking event that started in the New Ulm bank parking lot and utilized streets and the bike trail system, finishing at German Park. The 5K was professionally chip-timed with medals being awarded to the top 3 males and top 3 females in seven different age groups. Despite the threat of storms and cooler temps, the rain stayed away and we had 119 participants there that morning, raising $2,824.15 for the American Cancer Society!  We hope to see YOU at the starting line in 2020!
