FARGO (KFGO-AM) - A potential $1 million windfall could be coming to Minnesota State University-Moorhead.
Fargo businessman Steve Scheel has pledged $20,000 for each lap president Anne Blackhurst completes in MSUM's "Laps for the Long Run" event. Blackhurst plans to run 50 laps around the Nemzek Fieldhouse; which adds up to a potential gift of a million dollars.
The fundraising run is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Blackhurst is a long-distance runner who's training for her ninth marathon.
