THE STORY:

Friends, I hope you will support my efforts in supporting the Latin American Youth Center!  I'm running the MCM 10k on October 22 and have committed to raising $300 for LAYC.  THANK YOU!!! 

Please help us raise funds and awareness for Latin American Youth Center programs that help at-risk, vulnerable youth make a successful transition to adulthood. To learn more about our programs, click here.

 

TWO OPTIONS TO RACE WITH TEAM LAYC

1. Marine Corps Marathon

Registration Fee: $50

Fundraising Goal: $500

 

Described as the “best marathon for beginners,” the Marine Corps Marathon offers a route that traverses all major monuments in Washington, D.C. and scenic views of the Potomac River. Take part in this momentous marathon that has been a fixture of the D.C. area for more than four decades.

 

2. MCM10K

Registration Fee: $50

Fundraising Goal: $300

 

The MCM10K offers the MCM experience to runners who prefer running 6.2 miles over 26.2. Starting and finishing with the MCM runners, the MCM10K route winds through Arlington, VA. A great race for beginning racers, the MCM10K is well-organized, scenic, and fun.

FAQ’S

 

How much do I have to raise?
Marathon runners will be required to raise at least $500, while MCM10K runners will raise at least $300. At registration, you will pay a $50 registration fee that will count towards your overall fundraising goal. At that point, you will be able to set up your fundraising page to solicit donations from family, friends, businesses, and/or other donors. If you are unable to raise your required amount by August 15th, your credit card will be charged the remaining balance to reach your minimum fundraising level.

 

How can I register for the marathon?
After you raise your minimum fundraising level, LAYC will send you an email with your activation code for the MCM or MCM10K. At that point, you will have until August 30th to register with the MCM at this site: LINK.

 

Can I run if I’m under 18?
As long as you are age 14 or above as of October 22, 2017 and you have the signed approval of your parent/guardian, you can race with Team LAYC. All runners must sign a waiver on the MCM website, which you’ll gain access to after fundraising your minimum amount.

 

THE FINE PRINT

Running the MCM or MCM10K is entirely at your own risk. By registering to run with Team LAYC, Latin American Youth Center is in no way liable for any illness or injury resulting from training and/or participating in the race.

No Federal or Marine Corps endorsement of advertisers or sponsors is implied.
