Marathon registration
Early bird registration for the 2013 Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon will be accepted through Dec. 31. The marathon will be held April 28.

A percentage of proceeds will benefit the marathon’s non-profit partner, the Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism. Register now at

The Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon is known for being one of the fastest courses in the nation and acts as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon. Race participants are encouraged to register early to ensure that they secure a spot in the time-honored event; the Owens Corning Half Marathon is guaranteed to sell out as in past years.

Hayes Center receives grant
The Board of Trustees of Toledo Community Foundation approved a Reed Fund grant to the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in the amount of $5,000.

The funds will be used to bolster new development projects aimed at increasing the center’s income to ensure its long-term continuation.

The Reed Fund grant has been used to support hiring an administrative assistant for six months. The assistant will help the Executive Director and Development Director concentrate their efforts on development projects. New income sources are critical to the center, which has seen its annual income from the state decrease from $504,037 to $281,043.
