Ability Experience Challenge: Marine Corps Marathon

The Marine Corps Marathon weekend is one of The Ability Experience's signature events that brings a level of camaraderie second to none. Team members will embark on our nation's Capital on October 22, 2017. The breathtaking landscape and countless spectators provide an amazing atmosphere for The Ability Experience to show the abilities of all people.
