TGP is excited to once again be an official charity partner of the Marine Corps Marathon!
We have 40 slots for this year's marathon, and if previous years' enrollments are any sign of what to expect, they will go fast!
If you are interested in joining Team Grassroots, read the details below and click the 'FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN' button on the right-hand side of this page (the small gray button under DONATE).
Fundraising Minimum and Team Deposit:
In order to secure your spot on our team, we are asking you to deposit $200 via Crowdrise as soon as you sign up. This amount covers your race registration fee (which we will pay on your behalf), the fees that we pay to MCM in order to be a charity partner, and a TGP running jersey for race day.
Between sign-up and race day, each team member must raise a minimum of an additional $300. All of these funds will contribute to the expansion of TGP's programs in DC. If you are unaware of our work, check us out at www.GrassrootProject.org!
What Else to Expect:
We will be sending resources to all of our runners to help with fundraising and training for the big day. We also plan to host training runs, a pre-race dinner, and opportunities for our runners to visit the programs that they are fundraising for and to meet the people behind our work.
