Our team has two runners who were invited to participate in the 2018 Blue Ridge Marathon weekend. All race weekend expenses - registration, housing, food, etc have been covered. However, these two runners have to come up with airfare, and due to medical bills and more, it's daunting. If you can help these two runners make it to Roanoke for race weekend, that would be awesome. We are specifically looking for American Airlines gift cards and cash donations to be used specifically for their flights. Thank you in advance. 

Thank you to all of our Lake Tahoe Marathon weekend sponsors. Our team is very grateful for your support. 

Please consider helping our feature charities with THEIR needs!
