Pat RichardsPat will be participating in the following for 2020:
40th Marine Corps Marathon
Date: October 25, 2015
Location: Arlington, VA
This will be the second year I will run the Marine Corps Marathon for Team Marine Parents. My son is a Sergeant in the USMC, serving since 2009, and my daughter-in-law was honorably discharged from the US Navy in 2014 and is now attending San Diego State University.
The specific cause I'm running for this year is Warrior Support Team, which provides for veterans and active duty members of the armed forces recovering from injury and combat duty, in addition to assisting their caregivers and family members.
It's an honor to run for our Marines, service members and MarineParents at the Marine Corps Marathon. The MCM is well-supported, with Marines all along the route smiling, helping, and cheering you on. Believe me, you don't have to be fast to complete the MCM, but you do have to be prepared and in condition. ANYONE can do this inspirational run along the streets of Rosslyn and Georgetown, then around the Capitol Mall in DC and finally through the streets of Crystal City with an inspirational finish at Iwo Jima memorial. There's nothing like having the MCM medal placed around your neck by one of our proud Marines after you cross the finish line.
Consider joining fellow Marine parents at the MCM, and if you can't, please support the various causes Team Marine Parents are running for!
