For the past eight years, The Bachmann-Strauss Foundation has fielded a marathon team. From a modest beginning in 2006 with 10 runners raising over $34,000, the 2011 team of 40 runners raised $250,000, which funded four research grants in the dystonia and Parkinson's disease field.
(Note: The Marathon was not run in 2012 due to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.)
The Bachmann-Strauss Foundation hosts a team dinner the night before the Marathon, gives each runner a Bachmann-Strauss Foundation racing shirt, team mates & marathon weekly updates, and also provides each runner with valuable fundraising resources to achieve their fundraising goals.
