As a member of the Run for Burma team in the Marine Corps Marathon, you will save lives with each mile you run.
Run for Burma is the charity running team of Burma Humanitarian Mission. We provide medicine and medic training to backpack medics operating throughout the conflict zones of eastern and northern Burma where the Burma army…to this day…continues to inflict violence on the Karen and other ethnic minorities villagers. The army routinely steals land and livestock, shoots men and boys, rapes women to intimate them. Click here to see all of our programs to help the people of Burma. As a result of the Burma Army’s violence:
Where BHM supported medics operate, deaths from malaria and dysentery are down by 50% while child mortality has been cut in half.
Not only will you be raising money to save lives, but we offer great additional incentives:
In return, we ask you to raise a minimum of $500…one of the lowest thresholds for any MCM Charity team!
If you already have your bib and you’d like to join the Run for Burma team, we ask that you raise a minimum of $300.
