Marine Corps Marathon and the Kyle Pease Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
The MCM is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world and stands as the largest marathon in the world that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, "The People's Marathon." The MCM has been voted “Best Marathon in the Mid Atlantic,” “Best Marathon for Charities” and “Best Spectator Event."
We're looking for athletes to join us in DC to help spread our mission of inclusion! Start your team and get fundraising today and check out the smiles in our photo album from last year's race.
This year the Kyle Pease Foundation is excited to partner with The Ability Experience, a 35 year old 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission of, “Building leaders of tomorrow by serving people with disabilities today.”
The purpose of the Kyle Pease Foundation (KPF) is to create awareness and raise funds to promote success for persons with disabilities by providing assistance to meet their individual needs through sports.
Programs may include scholarship opportunities, purchasing of medical equipment or adaptive sports equipment for others or contributing to other organizations that provide similar assistance to disabled persons as well as participating in educational campaigns to create awareness about Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities.
