THE STORY:

The Nature Conservancy wrote -

The Nature Conservancy’s Team Nature is joining the Marine Corps Marathon on October 28, 2012. We want to make “the people’s marathon,” as the Marine Corps event is often known, a marathon for people and nature.

Our running team is raising funds to help protect and restore our planet and natural treasures like the Chesapeake Bay.

The 26.2-mile MCM course passes by some of our most treasured national monuments and is within easy driving distance of the Bay, Virginia Coast Reserve and Central Appalachians -- all important natural habitats the Conservancy has helped to protect.

Participation Details:

  • By joining Team Nature at the Marine Corps Marathon you agree to raise $400, which includes your $92 registration fee, by August 15.
  • The first 100 members of the team to raise $400 each will have a guaranteed entry to the marathon.

Join the Team Nature and start earning your MCM entry today. Here's how:

1.    Click the JOIN THE TEAM button.

2.    You’ll get a page just like this one under your name to customize! Share some information about yourself and why you have chosen to run the Marine Corps Marathon on behalf of nature. Add photos of the Chesapeake Bay, local forests or your favorite place in nature. 

3.    Share your page with friends and family via Facebook and Twitter and encourage them to support you and nature!

What a $400 donation to The Nature Conservancy could help us accomplish:

  • Restore more than 2,000 baby oysters to reefs in the Chesapeake Bay, providing habitat for rockfish and crabs.
  • Buy 2,000 longleaf pine seedlings to plant, helping restore one of America’s most diverse and endangered forest systems.
  • Conduct a prescribed burn on four acres at Warm Springs Mountain Preserve to help restore pine-oak forests.
  • And when you help us reach our collective MCM goal of $30,000, your efforts will help protect even more lands and waters for the benefit of people and nature.
