Not Alone is raising awareness and money for our cause through the Rock 'n' Roll USA Marathon and CareFirst Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. on March 16, 2013. This year we're making it easier than ever to let all of our runners, volunteers and supporters get involved and help make a difference by partnering with CrowdRise.


To Register for Not Alone's Charity Team, Click the big "Register" button.


To Donate just click the big "Donate" button and choose the runner you want to donate to. 


You may also donate by check.  Please contact Melanie Blair at for details.


How it works: 

Participants will pay a registration fee to join the team. Your registration fee includes the race entry.  As a thank for your fundraising efforts for this event (if you choose to fundraise), you will also receive a team t-shirt and a carb-loading dinner with the team at a D.C. restaurant the night before the event.


NEW THIS YEAR - Additional incentives and prizes such as your D.C. hotel room, airline gift card, and more can be earned by achieving other fundraising goals.


Your registration fee includes receiving the full benefits of the race as a charity runner, including but not limited to the race t-shirt, race medal, race expo and post-race festivities.


Half Marathon registration fees are as follows:


$110 through 12/31/12

Training/Fundraising Details:

Not Alone staff member Melanie Blair will serve as your coach and assist you with both your half marathon OR marathon training AND your fundraising to help ensure that you reach all your goals! Once you register to join the team, create your personal fundraising page on Crowdrise.  Your team registration fee will be added to your personal fundraising page by Not Alone.


Upon registration, you’ll receive a team information packet from Melanie. This will be full of training information, fundraising tips, etc. Don’t be nervous – you WILL succeed at completing the race AND raising the funds to help more returning war veterans and their families!

*Note: If you would like to register for Team Not Alone, please register on our site and NOT on the Rock 'n' Roll site. If you have already registered on the Rock 'n' Roll site, please contact us and we will convert your registration to a charity runner spot with Team Not Alone.



We need 60-75 volunteers for the water station we will be working this year.  It is the very first water station on the course, located at 1.8 miles into the course on 23rd Street NW between Constitution Ave and Lincoln Memorial Cir.  Sign up directly here and/or email Melanie Blair for more information at
