Team Heal Trauma

Registration Opens for the 33rd
Marine Corps Marathon and 10K Races!

Team Heal Trauma is a charity running and awareness team dedicated to drawing attention to the pervasiveness and impact of psychological trauma. Psychological trauma is a common, but often ignored or overlooked experience for survivors of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, terrorism, and war, impacting virtually all health and human service programs and services. With your help on our team, we can work together to ensure that trauma is addressed and we can begin to turn the human, social, and economic consequences for individuals, communities, and the nation to a place of healing and wellness.

Join the team as a runner (marathon or 10K), volunteer, or sponsor to demonstrate your commitment to addressing this important public health issue. Register Today! Space is Limited ...
