Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

Team TAPS at Marine Corps Marathon

Help Team TAPS at this year's Marine Corps Marathon!

As Team TAPS honors our fallen heroes by running the race, volunteers can do the same by providing critical team support. Volunteers are needed from expo load-in to finish line tent support. Dates, times, and specific volunteer opportunities are listed below.

All volunteers will receive a TAPS volunteer t-shirt and a name tag that will be worn during the shift. After you sign-up, you'll receive a final details email from TAPS Volunteer Resources with all of the details you need to be ready for your scheduled shift. 

Please direct any questions to [email protected] or call 202.588.TAPS (8277).

Thanks for helping Team TAPS cross the finish line!
