Diane & Alan Page Community Cheer Challenge
Twin Cities In Motion and Vikings Hall of Famer and former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page launched the Diane & Alan Page Community Cheer Challenge in 2022.
The Cheer Challenge invites Minnesotans to assemble along the marathon course to support runners and gather as a community, just like Justice Page and his late wife Diane did for decades. Bonus: Top cheer zones can win prizes for nonprofits of their choice!
The TCM Charity Program consists of over 40 nonprofit organizations who recruit team members to run the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon & Medtronic TC 10 Mile in support of their cause. All charity partners are invited to host an on-course cheer zone located in the Mission Mile, which celebrates the variety of causes represented by the program.
The Mission Mile is located at Oaks Park in Minneapolis, near the 20-mile mark of the marathon course and the 4-mile mark of the 10-mile course.
