The Marathon Jam gathers people and players from all walks of life and across the globe together for a day of public service. In recent years, the focus of the Marathon Jam has been to give tangible support to our service members and their families as they recover from injuries sustained in the line of duty by raising money for the Fisher House Foundation. There are two Fisher Houses in North Carolina. They are at Camp Lejeune and Fayetteville. Watch this site for more details as they are announced.
