On Oct. 25, 14 Holy Cross Midshipmen along with three staff members took part in the 34th Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., to raise money and awareness for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing relief for immediate financial needs that arise during hospitalization and recovery as well as perpetuating needs such as home modifications, customized transportation and specialized equipment for injured Marines, sailors, and their families. For the second year in a row, the Holy Cross NROTC Team was the leading fundraiser, raising more than $10,000 as of Nov. 12. For more information on the team, visit the team’s site.
