The Marine Corps Marathon is aptly nicknamed the “Marathon of the Monuments,” while offering a beautifully scenic route through some of the most impressive landscape and national monuments Arlington, VA and the nation’s capital have to offer.
Do you want to participate in the 40th MCM in October 2015? Did you miss out on getting in through the MCM Lottery? There's still room in "The People's Marathon" for the motivated masses who want to dedicate participation in the MCM to a cause. America 4R Veterans is a MCM approved Charity Partner and offers guaranteed access to the MCM.
What does America 4R Veterans do to assist our Veterans who suffer daily, all too often alienating themselves from society, in silence, due to their unseen wounds of combat?
The severity of a Veterans PTS ( Post Traumatic Stress) and/or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries) symptoms vary, so does their current needs. We connect our Veterans with the resources we have available, as well provide continued follow up with them during various processes. We connect our Veterans with and work alongside of official Branches of our Armed Forces they served under that have specific programs currently available to their post 9/11 Veterans. We provide comfort and support to our Veterans AND their families. Just as having a loved one serve active duty, once they complete their active duty the heartbreak issues surrounding their service is a total family experience. Educating and providing resources are equally important for family members whose loved ones are suffering.
Many Veterans need financial assistance to meet their monthly obligations while going through treatment on the road to healing. Taking into consideration the funds we have available we do our best to help with various financial needs. We also contact other nonprofit organizations, we believe working together for the common interest to meet the most dire needs of our Nations Heroes is crucial
