Team TAPS Marine Corps Marathon Corporate / Company Challenge

 
 

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is a heartfelt national non-profit veteran's organization that reaches out to the families and loved ones who have been impacted by a death of a loved one in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The last weekend of October, TAPS will be participating in the Marine Corps Marathon which also includes a 50K, a 10K and the MCM One Mile Kids Fun Run. During these events, Team TAPS pays tribute to the sacrifices made by our men and women in service to America, while raising funds and creating awareness to support the TAPS mission. Many of our runners, including children, are survivors who utilize these events in their healing process.

We are inviting a few select companies the opportunity to join our team.
