Join Team Pancreas

Want to run for a cause?

Has running a 10K or a marathon been on your bucket-list and you’re ready to check it off? Want a 26.2 mile or 10K running tour of Washington, DC?

Run for the National Pancreas Foundation!

Selected as a charity partner for the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon (Sunday, October 27, 2019 in Washington, DC), we are looking for a group of people to run in the name of finding a cure, in memory/in honor of a loved one, or supporting an organization that provides hope and courage to those suffering from pancreatic disease.  In return, the NPF will support you every step of the way with motivation, team support (via a private Facebook group), swag, team tent at the finish line, and a team pasta dinner the night before. In 2018, our 44 runners raised $36,686 all in the name of finding a cure for pancreas disease!

Voted as one of the best marathons for first-timers by Runner’s World as well as a must-do fall marathon – this race is simply one of the best! Below are just a few testimonials from our 2018 Team, consisting of 42 runners!

“The group of runners and organisers involved have truly inspired me. I have bonded with this group and the level of support amongst us all is all-consuming as we’ve all been affected by pancreas disease in some form.  – Dave

“My family and I stepped out to do something hard in honor of my brother who lives with chronic pancreatitis. Thank you DC for bringing me a whole new community of support. I have never connected with so many families here that have nearly the same experiences as mine.”  – Ashley

“Everything about the event was wonderful. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of the team. It was a great time and I can’t wait for next year!” – Danielle

“Thank you for organizing such a great team! Every detail was planned perfectly.” – Jenny

If you are interested, please fill out the form below and we will contact you once we receive all necessary details from the MCM Organization. Registration for Charity Runners for the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K opens April 2019.
