Opening festivities begin at 7:45 a.m. with the start at 7:55 a.m.

“While my mom was never a runner and sometimes questioned my love for endurance sports, she was always supportive of any challenge I chose to take on.

Through her battle with cancer, she certainly showed me that she was “tougher” than I could ever dream of being.”

Marine Corps Marathon is annually ranked as one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. Motivated individuals run the MCM as a tribute to a loved one serving this country or in memory of their sacrifice. They run in defiance, while facing an illness, whether their own or a loved one's. They run to show love of country. The MCM welcomes those finding a new path to fitness and those simply seeking to conquer a distance that once seemed impossible. Organized by the men and women of the United States Marine Corps, the MCM celebrates the honor, courage and commitment of all finishers. Held in Arlington, VA, National Harbor, MD and the nation’s capital, the MCM hosts runners from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
 I hope to help raise awareness about Ocular Melanoma and help find the answers about what causes this cancer and help find a cure. Thanks to all for your generosity and support.
