The mission of the Memorial Day 100 is to honor our past by embracing our future. We do this by honoring, celebrating and recognizing those Veterans that have provided the ultimate 'Service above Self' commitment.
Over the past six years, this event has raised more then $140,000. The run has gone from Richmond, VA to Washington D.C., Eastern Long Island to Ground Zero, N.Y.C. and from the original site of the Tun Tavern (birthplace of the Marine Corps) in Philadelphia, PA to the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, VA which was the longest at 170 miles!
All the runners are Marine Veterans and family members of the 3rd Battalion, 25th Regiment who served in Iraq. During their 2005 deployment, the 3/25 lost forty-eight brothers, making this one of the highest sacrifices of the Iraq War. All Proceeds raised go directly to help Veterans.
