Marine Corps Marathon Fundraiser

Hi all,

I am very excited to be running the Marine Corps Marathon this year on October 27, 2013. As you may have heard registration day for this event was absolutely bananas. The marathon sold out in less than 2.5 hours with about 30,000 runners participating. Luckily this year I will be running with The Little Things for Cancer charity group which is awesome! We have roughly 25 members of the charity who will all be running the marathon and raising the awareness for this cause.

The Little Things for Cancer charity group provide funds for services for cancer patients and their caregivers. The Little Things differs from many other organizations in that they offer support to people affected by all types of cancer, not just one specific type.

I am on a mission to raise $1500 if not more for the charity group. I am asking all of my support group, family, and friends etc to help me in raising funds for such a great cause and charity organization. I have included a link below where all donations can be made. All of the proceeds will go directly to the charity.


Thanks for all of your support over the years!


LJay Health!

    I am so excited to be running this race! I’d like to run it again in the future and run for a charity. Good luck with your training!

    Good luck, and we have something similar in Canada called the Army Race in Ottawa.

      Yes!!! I heard of this one. In September right? It always sales out. I also would like to do Ottawa marathon!

      • Opalla says:

        The Ottawa Marathon is earlier, in May. Well worth doing 🙂

      • L-Jay Health says:

        Are you going to run either?

      • Opalla says:

        Not this time. I have friends who have run or power-walked it and they come back with very positive feedback about the race. It is on my bucket list to power walk the half -marathon. Meanwhile, I have only signed up for Sporting Life 10K in Toronto on May 12. Imageine, in that race, some 27,000 people race down Yonge Street–a real sight and the experience is phenomenal. This is my third time with the race.

    MCM is what I want to do for my first marathon next year. I do know registering is crazy so I’ll have to strategize now how I’m going to make it happen. Any suggestions?
    Good luck and have a blast!

    • L-Jay Health says:

      That’s awesome! It will be a great first marathon! You will get the true experience of all the positive energy and motivation from other runners and spectators. It’s a hit or miss with the registration. You just have to wait by the computer until registration opens and then submit and hope it goes through. You could always run with a charity but there are fundraising requirements to meet in order to run. Either way is good!

  7. jsresults says:

    Thats awesome man! I will certainly donate! Let’s get after it man!!

  8. Congratulations on such an awesome goal for a worthwhile cause! It’s great motivation for sure! I’ve only ran one marathon and it took a tremendous amount of dedication, willpower, motivation and TIME! You’ll do it 🙂

    Good luck, this is definitely on the bucket list of races. I had a friend try to sign up for 4 hours yesterday and never get in, your way sounds like a better way for so many reasons!
