Supporting Vets through Music
Playing music for in-patient Veterans at VA Hospitals across North Carolina.
How We Help
As Marathon Jam became more successful, we began to look for ways to utilize the resources at hand to make Marathon Jam more than just a one-day-a-year event. By mid-2014, Marathon Jam began providing musicians for the VA Hospital in Durham, North Carolina to provide an easy, informal evening of music laced with conversation and humor. This formula proved to be very successful and thus many warm and genuine friendships began that continue to this very day. In 2016, with the help of a Durham VA music therapist, Marathon Jam began performing at the VA Hospital in Salisbury, NC. Since that time and with the help of the amazing Marathon Jam Hospital Volunteers, Marathon Jam now covers a HUGE swath of central North Carolina, providing outreach to Veterans in Fayetteville, Durham, Kernersville and Salisbury.
