The Brainerd Jaycees Run for the Lakes is organized by volunteers of the Brainerd Jaycees, and all the proceeds are donated to local nonprofit organizations.
For 2022, the main beneficiary is the Pohl Children’s Foundation - a nonprofit memorial foundation for Mearan Ruby-Rea Pohl, Bracken Kyle Pohl and Kegan Michael Pohl. All three children passed away from spinocerebellar ataxia type 7, a rare genetic disease. Their father, Kyle Pohl, also has SCA7 and is considered terminal.
The Run for the Lakes event supports other various nonprofits and members of the local community.
