YOU DID IT!!!
Thank you to ALL of you for your hard work, dedication and support! Through all kinds of weather, injuries and a possible Government shut down, you dedicated a good part of this past year to training and fundraising for our injured and critically ill service members. What an outstanding accomplishment you have made. At this year's marathon you were part of the largest charity team in the Marine Corps Marathon.
We thank you so much for not only raising funds, but most importantly, raising awareness of the needs of our injured and critically ill service members. This amazing team will be hard to top, but we are hopeful that you'll join us again next year and we're confident that our 2014 runners will enjoy the challenge as much as you have.
It has truly been a pleasure working with you this year and we look forward to seeing everyone next year...and bring a friend!

ABOUT THE MARINE CORPS MARATHON:
The MCM was established in 1976, and as of 2009 the MCM became the fourth largest marathon in the United States and the eighth largest in the world with runners from more than 50 participating countries.
The race typically occurs a few weeks before the United States Marine Corps birthday on November 10. The Marine Corps Marathon is known as "The People's Marathon" because it is open to all runners ages 14 and above, and is the largest marathon not to offer prize money.
Thank you to all of our runners and supporters for your dedication to our mission of "serving those who preserve our freedom!"
