On October 27, 2013, 18 supporters ran for the Cancer Research Institute in the 38th Marine Corps Marathon in Arlington, VA, raising more than $26,000 to support the development of safe, effective immunotherapies to treat all different types of cancer.
Team CRI runners and their guests enjoyed a great carb-loaded dinner at Il Canale in Georgetown the night before the 27.2-mile race, sharing running tips and stories amongst each other. On the day of the race, an amazing crowd lined the streets of Arlington and D.C., with Marines cheering on and passing out beverages to more the 23,480 runners, the marathon’s second-largest participation. At the end of the race, the Marines awarded the medals to the runners, placing them around their necks—a beautiful, experience to mark the honor of the U.S. military men and women, and the dedication of those supporting research to conquer cancer.
