We would like to applaud all members of TEAM USO who participated in the Marine Corps Marathon and 10k yesterday. It truly was an amazing day and your support of our troops and their families is to be commended. Altogether the team raised over $34,000, with 36 runners participating.
We’d also like to send a big thank you to all who came out to support the runners. We know they wouldn’t have made it through 6.2 or 26.2 miles without family and friends cheering them on. And we’re already looking forward to doing it all over again next year!
Check out more photos from the day on TEAM USO’s Facebook page. If you are interested in joining TEAM USO and running the Marine Corps Marathon in 2011 please email firstname.lastname@example.org. TEAM USO registration for the marathon and 10K will open in early 2011 and we are always looking for new teammates. Hope to see you out there!
