Team MSAA for the Marine Corps Marathon


On a chilly Sunday morning with the threat of Hurricane Sandy on the horizon, 23,515 runners embarked on the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) on October 28, 2012. In the group of 23,515 runners were eight members of Team MSAA, running on behalf of the multiple sclerosis community. These eight runners, dedicated the past six months to training and preparing for the grueling 26.2 mile course, which started at the Pentagon and went through some of the most historic sites in the nation’s capital. Team MSAA for the MCM, raised almost $9,000 in support of MSAA’s mission of enriching the quality of life of everyone affected by MS. Team MSAA was comprised of individuals from across the country. You can read about them by visiting the Team MSAA page and I encourage you to do so, as their personal stories are very inspiring!

Thank you Team MSAA!  You did great work!

Here are a few pictures from race day!
