If you’ve dreamed of running this iconic race, here’s the perfect way to make your dream come true: By signing up for The Children’s Inn’s Marine Corps Marathon charity team, you will not only benefit from the guidance of a professional running coach but also support NIH pediatric patients staying at The Children’s Inn.

Inn staff member Erica shares why she's running on Team #RunINN4Kids

“Our training schedule and tips make it possible for anyone who likes running to get ready to run this amazing marathon,” says Anne Mandeville, The Inn’s director of development operations and strategic partnerships. “I’m proof of that because I did it two years ago, and it was an amazing feeling to complete my first marathon. We have a good number of staff running this year, and we hope to have NIH staff join them.”

The Inn’s charity team, called Team #RunINN4Kids, starts its marathon training June this month. To learn more about Team #RunINN4Kids or sign up, visit the website.
