A MESSAGE FROM National Foundation For Cancer Research

The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization co-founded in 1973 by Nobel Laureate Dr. Albert Szent-Györgyi that provides scientists in the lab the critical seed funding they need to make game-changing discoveries in cancer treatments, detection, prevention and ultimately, a cure. 


NFCR has distinguished itself in the cancer research sector by emphasizing “high-risk, high-impact” pioneering research fields often overlooked by other major funding sources. With the support of more than 5.3 million individual donors over the last 51 years, NFCR has provided $410 million in funding to cancer research, prevention, and public education, leading to some of the life-saving discoveries that benefit patients today. We believe "Together, We Make Cures Possible!"


NFCR is proud to be a charity partner at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., on October 27, 2024!


We are covering registration fees for all of our runners and just ask participants to fundraise minimal levels as part of our team requirements - $250 for the 10K race and $500 for the primary or 50K race.


NFCR has several opportunities to get involved, including race slots available for:

MCM 10k: 20 spots

MCM 26.2: 25 spots

MCM 50k: 5 spots

When you join NFCR’s Charity Marine Corps Marathon Team, you will experience one of the most exciting and inspiring races in the Nation, and you’ll be helping advance critical cancer research projects making a difference in people’s lives.
