- Hi guys and gals,
I am looking preferrably for 2 men and 2 women to run for Autism in the
Marine Corps Marathon.
I am with the Autism Society of America of Northern Virginia and top
priority is that we don't waste these slots.
Our second priority would be to make some money from the event.
Please contact me - Jim - 703-430-0937 - before August 8th.
