On a Sunday, October 27 morning which was, depending on any given moment, either wet from an intermittent downpour or warm whenever the rain let up, Executive Vice President Dan Weaver led CBM staff members, Jordan Egert, Abbie Niehoff and Joe Kovacs in their second annual Marine Corps 10K, in fundraising support of The Children’s Inn at NIH.
Dan serves on the board of directors of The Children’s Inn, a not-for-profit residence that provides support for families with seriously ill children who are involved in leading-edge research studies at the Inn’s site on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. This is the second consecutive year Dan has championed CBM’s participation in the Marine Corps 10K; runners who join The Children’s Inn team agree to raise at least $600 each to participate. In addition to the four runners listed above, a fifth wasn’t able to join due to an injury.
CBM raised a total of $3,000, as a result!
The Marine Corps 10K began on the National Mall in downtown Washington, DC early on a Sunday morning, with the sun still barely above the horizon, and wound its way into and through northern Virginia to the finish line near the Marine Corps Memorial in Rosslyn.
Congratulations to our team members and everyone else who participated. Individuals interested in volunteering or learning more about The Children’s Inn at NIH can visit their website at https://childrensinn.org/
