The IAFF Charitable Foundation Fitness Team invites you to run the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) on October 22, 2017, to help raise funds to support IAFF members and their families when they need it most.
As a charity partner for the Marine Corps Marathon, the IAFF Foundation has a limited number of race entries available to members who join the IAFF Charitable Foundation Fitness Team. Each team member must raise a minimum of $750 for the Foundation in order to receive a bib and participate in the race.
To register for the IAFF Fitness Team, click here. If you have already registered for the Marine Corps Marathon, you can still be part of the IAFF Charitable Foundation Fitness Team using the “Team Only Registration.” Team members who register through the MCM must raise a minimum of $500.
Registration with our Fitness Team includes a bib entry to the 2017 MCM,* a welcome kit, Fitness Team gear, tickets to the welcome banquet, entry to the VIP Charity Tent and private bag drop, and breakfast and lunch at the race.
There is also an option to run the MCM 10K and still join the IAFF Fitness Team. However, the IAFF does not provide guaranteed 10K bibs – 10K registration is only available through the MCM website. 10K runners are only required to pay the team entry fee and must raise a minimum of $400.
More information about the 2017 MCM is here.
*Bib numbers will not be distributed until you have reached the fundraising minimum. This allows us to fill your slot with a runner from the waiting list if you do not meet the fundraising minimum. Once you are registered through the IAFF Fitness Team site, you will receive a personal fundraising site that allows donors to donate to the Foundation under your name.
With a mission to “help those who help others,” the IAFF Charitable Foundation is dedicated to protecting and assisting IAFF members who put their lives on the line to save others, as well as the communities they serve.
