2023: Our 13th annual race on September 23rd and it's Mary Lea's 43rd birthday!
With your support, we have helped raise over $40,000 over the last ten years in memory of Mary Lea to help support 14 young Atchison High School women achieve their dreams at a Kansas university. We hope that you can help us by running, donating or volunteering in support of these young women and future recipients
The race team thanks each and every participant and volunteer over the last 13 years. Without your support and dedication, we could have never imagined that 11 years later we are still running and walking in Mary Lea's memory. THANK YOU!
Joggin for the Noggin is the annual fundraiser to benefit the Mary Lea Johanning Scholarship. This scholarship benefits Atchison High School graduating senior women that are attending a Kansas university or college. Scholarship recipients are selected based on their academic standings, extracurricular involvement, and qualities Mary Lea represented.
