Team Seymour Pink getting ready for the 42nd MCM


Seymour Pink, a community fight against Breast Cancer, was selected this year to be a charity partner for the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon (MCM).

The Marine Corps Marathon weekend happens every October in Washington DC. Runners from around the world come together to run their hearts out while generating goodwill. The MCM is the largest marathon in the world that does not offer prize money to its top finishers. Instead, the event is a celebration of every finisher’s HONOR, COURAGE and COMMITMENT to training for, and completing, the MCM.

On Friday September 22, 2017 Seymour Pink held a social gathering for the local members of Team Seymour Pink. Eight members of the 22 member Team Seymour Pink, who will be running in the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC, in the fight against breast cancer were able to attend. The rest of the team from around the country will join together in Washington DC on October 22, 2017.

Team Seymour Pink are incredible people who have dedicated a huge part of their daily lives to train for running this marathon in support of the fight against breast cancer. Additionally, in order to be part of Team Seymour Pink each team member was required to raise a set amount of donations in support of the MCM Charity partner Seymour Pink. Therefore, each runner has been training and fund raising for months in preparation for the marathon, for some, their first experience running a marathon.

It is all about community and it is all about family. It’s not just the runner’s commitment of time, energy and sometimes pain, but also requires the support from their families in order to give them the time to train and participate!

Go Team Seymour Pink!
