By Community | October 1, 2014

Medtronic and Twin Cities In Motion, cialis the organizers of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, today announced a five-year, $2.5 million agreement that will keep Medtronic as the title sponsor of the Twin Cities Marathon.

The deal will also include three additional Twin Cities In Motion events through 2020: the TC 1 Mile, TC Family Events, and TC 10 Mile. Additionally, Medtronic will continue to support the Medtronic TC Kids Marathon, a nationally recognized youth running program that promotes exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyles.

Since Medtronic became title sponsor of the four events in 2006, Twin Cities In Motion has seen event participation increase more than 42 percent.

“This partnership clearly has enabled us to do more to promote health and fitness in Minnesota,” said Virginia Brophy Achman, Twin Cities In Motion executive director. “We have more children and family members running in TCM events than ever before, and we will continue to expand our reach with our award-winning TC Kids Program.”

“These world-class events provide an exceptional opportunity for all Minnesotans to come together to run, walk, wheel, volunteer and connect as a community,” says Dr. Jacob Gayle, vice president, Medtronic Philanthropy. “We hope our continued support allows Twin Cities In Motion to continue its impressive growth, while bringing even more people from all over the world to the Twin Cities to celebrate their passion for running and for life.”
