The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation is honored to partner with the TCS NYC Marathon for a 4th consecutive year!  We had a very successful outing in 2017 with our 6 runners raising more than $45,000! 




We received 5 charity spots for the 2018 TCS NYC marathon on November 4th. Application and details are below.  


We also encourage any individuals interested in participating to try to grab a slot in the lottery.  The application window is open between January 15 and February 15, 2018. Here is the link: http://www.tcsnycmarathon.org/plan-your-race/run-in-2018


Our goal is to beat last year's total and hit $50,000 to provide scholarships to Special Operations soldiers, like Glen.  Glen Doherty was a former Navy SEAL, killed in Benghazi, Libya when our American Consulate was attacked by terrorists.  We established the Foundation to honor Glen, his love for life and dedication to this country.


We need YOU in November 2018!  We are looking for marathon runners looking to support a military cause.  Help us raise funds to provide current and former Special Ops soldiers an opportunity to transition to civilian life.  It is also a fantastic way to say thank you to our “GDMF Scholars” for their service.
