In 2017 alone, there are over 16.1 million American's providing unpaid caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer's and other dementias. The Windward Foundation was founded in 2016 to help ease the burden of caregiving for individuals and families traveling this devastating journey. We are a proud charity partner of the Marine Corps Marathon! The Windward Foundation will #RunWithTheMarines and we'd love for you to join us!
100% of the funds raised from the Windward Foundation Team #WindwardRuns2018 will go directly to the programs and services that support Alzheimer's caregivers in the National Capital Region.
10K Runners who run with Team #WindwardRuns2018 will:
•Support the mission of the Windward Foundation
•Receive a personal fundraising page and tools to make it easy
•Receive a dry fit shirt to wear on race day
•Have the opportunity to win awesome Windward swag / fundraising prizes
•Have a $250 fundraising requirement
•Pay the $50 registration fee + $1.88 processing fee paid directly to the Marine Corps Marathon after you have raised your first $100 (Registration link and code are provided by the Windward Foundation)
Marathon Runners who already registered to run can join our team, too! For 2018 we will only be providing bibs for 10k runners, but if you have already registered on your own to run the Marine Corp Marathon or 10k but would like to join our team of fundraisers supporting the Windward Foundation, please join our team.
