In so many ways the 2019 Marathon Jam has been a HUGE success.
In spite of terrible weather, we had a wonderful and very appreciative audience there to cheer for the Veterans and First Responders we honored on Saturday, Feb. 23rd. We wrapped ten Veterans in our custom-made red, white, and blue Marathon Jam Quilts Of Honor as well as recognizing our very first 911 Operator and the Chapel Hill Chief of Police, Chris Blue!
We played some really good music with really excellent musicians from all over the state and met wonderful people, including three of our Iron Quilters—the incredibly gifted and giving people who make the Quilts Of Honor for us by hand.
Our goal for the last three years has been to raise $10,000 for each Fisher House in North Carolina, Camp Lejeune (Marines) and Fort Bragg (Army). We are on the way and you can still help…
We have raised a little over $14,000, and if we can just get to $16,000, we could send $8,000 to each Fisher House!
Remember: every little bit helps. Marathon Jam is an official nonprofit 501(c)3, so your donations are tax deductible.
Please help us help the families of injured soldiers here in North Carolina!
