After donation collection at hlaupastyrkur.is around the Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon ended, Islandsbanki, the main sponsor of the race, hosted an event to celebrate in their headquarters. Representatives from charities, runners, organisers of the race and supporters came together.
This year the total amount collected was 199.932.170 ISK split between 155 different charities. This means that the total amount collected for charities since the race became a charity race is around 1443 million Icelandic Króna.
Those runners who collected the most for their charity got specially honoured at the event. A few charities where awarded a price money for their presence on the course during the race.
Lárus Welding collected the most of the individuals on hlaupastyrkur.is, 3.155.000 ISK for the charity, Krýsuvíkursamtökin. The running group that collected the most money was BOSS HHC, 7.696.499 ISK for Kraftur and the charity that collected the most was Ljósið - Endurhæfingar- og stuðningsmiðstöð fyrir krabbameinsgreinda that collected 19.933.770 ISK
All donations collected will go straight to the charities because Islandsbanki bank pays for all the cost of the donation collection.
