Marine Corps Marathon 10K- Running for Zero

Join the Running for Zero Team for the Marine Corps Marathon 10K in Washington DC!

With fall approaching, it is time once again for the Marine Corps Marathon 10K! Objective Zero will be fielding a team for this year's event, which will be on Sunday, October 28. 

Much like last year, each OZ runner's event registration will be covered, and in return we ask that you reach out to your networks to raise awareness and financial support for OZ. Last year, Team Objective Zero raised over $6,000!

If you or someone you know is interested in running for Zero in this year's MCM10K, you can reply to this email or send a note to richard@objectivezero.org and I will send a registration link and access code so you can join Team Objective Zero!

Fundraising Information:

Fundraising is not required to run with Team Objective Zero. However, running the MCM10K is a wonderful opportunity to share your passion for our mission. We're setting a team goal of raising $10,000 by October 28 - with a full team, that's just $500 per person. Building on the success of last year's fundraising, we have a feeling we will crush this goal!


Ways to fundraise:

1. Share this donation page with your friends, family and network: https://objectivezero.givingfuel.com/runningforzero 
They'll be able to select your name, and you'll be notified anytime someone donates in your support! (Check this page for a running tally of all funds raised. I'll update it regularly!)

2. Create a Facebook fundraiser! These are very powerful, and very easy to use. Please check out Objective Zero App - Ending Veteran, Military Suicide. Start here to create your own fundraiser: https://www.facebook.com/fundraisers/ 

3. DIY! Let us know if you have your own idea.

If you are not comfortable fundraising, instead consider sharing links to our Suicide Prevention Ambassador training sign-up page and encouraging friends and family to learn about providing peer support to our veterans as an Objective Zero Ambassador.

Contact amy@objectivezero.org with any fundraising questions or suggestions.  


Thanks for your continued support of Objective Zero and I look forward to running with you all in October!
