 Warriors Need Your Votes!
Added March 26, 2015

A couple weeks ago, we shared a story about a group of stylists at United Hairlines in Chicago who recently held a fundraiser on our behalf and raised $2,700. Now, the same group has entered a contest to have the chance to win $10,000, which they will donate to our Warrior Support Team outreach program if they win. And we need you, the Marine Parents family, to help make that happen!

Tomorrow, March 13, the registration lottery for the 40th annual Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) will open at 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Last year's MCM sold out in only two hours, so spots go fast.
