Team Jill's House
October 26, 2014
|CONGRATULATIONS to the 2014 Team Jill's House for raising over $31,000 for Jill's House!!! Many families will get to experience much-needed respite because of their efforts. Thank you so much for you hard work and dedication!|
For the seventh year, Team Jillís House will participate in the Marine Corps Marathon. We welcome you to join us to help raise much-needed revenue to support the families raising children with special needs Jill's House serves.
Jillís House has been a source of hope and joy to those they serve: the couple who celebrated their anniversary on their first date in 15 years Ö the single mom who was able to study for a nursing degree Ö the typical siblings who went to a movie with their parents for the first time Ö the child with special needs who had her first sleepover with a friend.
The minimum fundraising goal for each 10K runner is $750* and $1250* for each marathon runner, and Jill's House relies on each runner to meet their goal by the date of the race and your credit card will be held as a guarantee.
*NOTE: Once you register with Team Jill's House with a $100 donation, you will be emailed a code used to register your running spot with Marine Corps Marathon and 10K directly in order to secure your running bib. THIS IS A MANDATORY STEP TO SECURE YOUR BIB AND RUNNING SLOT WITH MCM. Jill's House will give you this code once you register with us. The $110 MCM registration fee for the marathon and the $50 MCM registration fee for the 10K is NOT included in the Team Jill's House minimum fundraising requirements. You will be responsible for paying the MCM registration fee directly to the MCM Event Managers in addition to the minimum Team Jill's House deposit. This is a new requirement for the 2014 Marine Corps Marathon directed by the Marine Corps Marathon Management.
By running in the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K, you are giving the gift of hope and renewal to hundreds of families served at Jill's House. Thank you for coming alongside these courageous families and their inspiring children.
