Organizers of Clarksville’s Go Commando Half Marathon and 5K presented by CDE Lightband announced last week they will be donating 40-thousand dollars to non-profits and community organizations.
The largest recipients are the Clarksville Area YMCA and Fort Campbell Historical Foundation. The money received by the Clarksville YMCA will be used to fund programs such as their ABC Outreach and Restore Ministries.

Restore ministries works to provide healing and hope for those who are struggling with some of life’s toughest issues.
The Fort Campbell Historical Foundation provides support and assistance to Fort Campbell soldiers and their families.
Additional agencies that received funding included the Austin Peay track and field teams, the Clarksville Running Club, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Reserve, Clarksville Parks and Recreation and the Green Beret Foundation.
