In 2007, close to 200 runners competed in the Marine Corps Marathon* as American Cancer Society Charity Runners. Through their training, meeting other runners, sharing their stories and meeting the challenges of the 26.2 mile journey, these runners raised over $300,000 for the American Cancer Society, along with making memories that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
This year, the Marine Corps Marathon will be held on October 26, 2008.
Our goal is to have over 300 Charity Runners to represent the American Cancer Society in 2008, raising over $350,000. Please join us for a once in a lifetime experience that will give you a special
