If you’re in the Washington DC area and aren’t up for running a marathon you can still help our wounded, ill and injured service people and veterans by joining our support team!
We’re looking for volunteers to staff our extra water stations along the Marine Corps Marathon route on October 22. We’re also looking for donations of bottled water and oranges or other supplies to help fuel the AFF Team SideXSide runners. It’s a great day out and whilst doing your bit.
Great news! Our deadline for registering for the Marine Corps Marathon has been extended until September 17. If you do know anyone who may be interested in joining us, then please ask them to email email@example.com as soon as possible.
Whilst we will cover the cost of the bib for any wounded, ill or injured service people or veterans, the cost of the race entry for all others is $160.
Get in touch now if you missed out and want to run with us!
