For the third consecutive year, supporters of the George Washington University Cancer Institute pounded the pavement throughout Washington, D.C., as participants of the 37th annual Marine Corps Marathon Oct. 28. This year’s GWCI Marine Corps Marathon Team, comprising 41 marathoners and 82 10K runners, raised more than $42,000 to support the Cancer Institute's efforts to eliminate cancer and cancer disparities. They joined 23,515 runners from all 50 states and 54 countries from around the world to cross the finish line and complete the fourth largest marathon in the country. The 26.2-mile course starts in front of the Pentagon and winds its way throughout northwest Washington, D.C., before ending at the foot of the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Va.
