Our Marine Corps 10K/Marathon Charity Team

Why Run with Team #RunINN4Kids

The Children’s Inn at NIH is excited to be a charity partner for the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) and 10K. When you choose our #RunINN4Kids race team, you are raising much-needed funds to provide a free “place like home,” where seriously ill children stay with their families while they are undergoing treatment at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Moreover, each dollar raised from Team #RunINN4Kids fuels access to the research that makes childhood possible for the more than 15,000 children and their families, traveling from all 50 states and 94 different countries, who have stayed at The Inn. The Inn provides not only free lodging, but also meals, more than 1,400 hours of educational, recreational and therapeutic programming each year—things like homework help, field trips to the monuments in DC and even summer camp for children that could never otherwise attend—all while enabling families to develop friendships and learn from others who know what it’s like to seek the promise of hope or a cure for a seriously ill child. The money raised by #RunINN4Kids makes childhood possible for the children who stay at The Inn and for children worldwide that benefit from the research happening at NIH.
