About the Corporal Philip Reynolds Detachment of the Marine Corps League
The Marine Corps Run For Freedom started with a simple idea. To help Active Duty and Veteran Marines. Whether it was the family who lost their loved one defending our freedom, or the veteran that is having trouble buying groceries we wanted to do something to help.
Started by Marines for Marines.
The run was started by the Corporal Philip Reynolds Detachment of the Marine Corps League. We wanted to reach those in need on both the national and local level. We teamed up with the Marine Raider Foundation and the Semper Fi & America’s Fund to do just that. The run has since raised thousands of dollars for our charities.
