Building Bridges Across the River (BBAR) is a 2019 Charity Partner for the Marine Corps Marathon 10k event. The 6.2 mile race takes place on Sunday, October 27, 2019 - the same day as the Marine Corps Marathon, one of the most popular marathons in the country! The fundraising commitment for our Charity Runners is to each raise $500.00 which has the potential to provide over $10,000.00 in support for BBAR-THEARC. We are excited about this opportunity and whether you are one of our Charity Runners or Supporters or both, we appreciate you!
If you would like to join Team BBAR, you can register for the MCM10k here.
