The Marine Corps Aviation Association announced the date for the 31st annual Semper Fi Charity Run/Walk. The Semper Fi run will be held on Naval Air Station Pensacola. The USATF sanctioned race will start near Radford Gymnasium and feature a scenic route throughout the Naval Base. Post race events including food, drink, and music, will be held on base at the finish line.
The Semper Fi Charity Run race participants may register online or with a mail-in form. Both forms are available at www.semperficharityrun.org/registration.html. Registration rates are $30 per runner until Sept. 6. Prices go up to $35 on race day.
The Semper Fi Charity Run began in 1983 with the goal of helping the families of the 241 American service members killed in the bombing attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut. Today, the purpose of the race is to give back to the Pensacola community. All proceeds will benefit the local outreach programs: New Horizons of Northwest Florida, Escambia Westgate School, The Miracle League of Pensacola, Gulf Coast Kids House, and the Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Coast.
In 2013, Marine Corps Aviation Association was able to raise over $35,000 for the local charities. If you would like to sponsor this event, please visit www.semperficharityrun.org/sponsors.html or call 858-603-1361.
