BENEFITING: Queens Centers for Progress
ORGANIZER: Queens Centers for Progress
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2017
I'm running this great marathon to raise money for Queens Centers for Progress, in support of the amazing work they do each day and in honor of their commitment to providing person-centered services and support to children and adults who have developmental disabilities. The goal of these services and support is to promote independence, community involvement, and quality of life.
Recognized for impeccable organization on a scenic course managed by the US Marines in Arlington, VA and the nation's capital, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. The MCM is the largest marathon that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, "The People's Marathon." This will be my first time participating in this race and my first time racing in this part of the country. I'm very excited to cross this off my "A marathon in all fifty states" goal list while supporting such a fantastic cause.
Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization that impacts many lives in such a meaningful way by donating anything you can. Whatever you can donate is greatly appreciated.
