The 12th Annual Marathon Jam is at Chapel Hill Post 6 on the last Saturday, in February. This year it is February 24, 2018. It starts at 1 p.m. and goes non-stop to 1 a.m. Come on in and join the fun.
The American Legion is very proud of the part we have have played in making the Marathon Jam a success by donating space and resources for the many musicians who perform. The Chapel Hill event has raised well over $150,000 and spinoff, concurrent events worldwide have generated over $500,000 for Fisher Houses! It all started right here in Chapel Hill and is part of our 100 years of service to the many communities of these United States.
What’s a Marathon Jam? It is local musicians joining together for a non-political jam to raise awareness and money for military families. They gather at the Chapel Hill American Legion Post at 1 p.m. and play non-stop for twelve hours. New musicians join in all day long to give others a break and the music continues. Learn more
