There’s Still Time to Join Team Magee for the Philadelphia Marathon!

Magee Staff @ Rothman 8KIt’s hard to believe the Philadelphia Marathon is just one week away. But here’s the good news: there’s still time to join Team Magee! We’re looking for hand cyclists and runners to participate in the full and half marathons on November 17 and the Rothman 8K on November 16. And the best part? All funds raised help support Magee’s Wheelchair Sports Program!

The course begins in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just feet from the Rocky Statue and steps where the most famous run in Philly ended. The Marathon and Half-Marathon routes allow runners to experience a blend of downtown Philly, University City, and Historic Philadelphia including sites such as the Betsy Ross House, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell.

The fundraising commitment to join Team Magee includes:

  • Entrance to the marathon, half marathon or Rothman 8K;
  • Team Magee singlet;
  • Free parking at 16th & Race Street, just blocks away from marathon’s starting line;
  • Runner-friendly pre-race water and refreshments in the Hospital’s lobby; and
  • Access to reserved hotel rooms at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel

Not a runner or hand cyclist? You can sponsor an athlete with a disability or adopt a runner. You can also join the Let Them Run Team by pledging $1 for every mile in a full marathon ($26.20) to support the runners and hand cyclists of Team Magee!

Better hurry — time is running out!
