The 2016 Soldier Marathon donated $40,000 to the following military beneficiaries: National Infantry Museum, the House of Heroes, Team Red, White, & Blue (RWB), and the Ft. Benning Moral, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) to support soldiers and their families. Since its founding in 2010, the Soldier Marathon has donated over $150,000 to military beneficiaries, and with the support of its runners we will continue that support.
The National Infantry Museum Foundation honors Soldiers by supporting the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center. Its mission is to provide education and training to Soldiers, families, and the general public on the history of the United States Infantry, the origin and development of Fort Benning, and an overview of the U.S. Army. The National Infantry Museum was voted the #1 free public museum in America by USA Today. For more information go to www.nationalinfantrymuseum.org
