NAAF Director to run in Marine Corps Marathon

Our very own Ted Sapp, Executive Director of the Nathaniel Anthony Ayers Foundation, has registered to run in the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct. 30 in Arlington, VA. 30,000 participants will run the 26.2 mile event through Northern Virginia and the nation’s capital.

You can help spur Ted on as he continues to prepare for this event, and as he runs on October 30. This will be Ted’s first marathon. To boost Ted’s spirits and show him some love, donate now to the Nathaniel Anthony Ayers Foundation.

The 36th Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is increasing runner tracking throughout the world of social networks and the mobile universe. For the first time, runners and spectators can view a participant’s progress every 10K in real time on individual Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, email and text messages.

By registering for a new runner tracking program, available on the MCM website, runners and spectators will be able to receive continuous updates as an individual runner reaches the 10K, 20K, 30K and 40K splits and across the MCM finish. These updates can be automatically posted on a runner’s personal Facebook and Twitter page, or they can be received via email or over SMS text messaging.

Voted the best marathon for families, the Marine Corps Marathon honors the dedication, sportsmanship and patriotism of its participants. The MCM, sponsored by Brooks, Nissan, Aetna, Arlington, VA and GE, is the fifth largest marathon in the United States and the ninth largest in the world.
