2017 Bataan Memorial Dealth March

It’s that time of the year again! We are excited to be participating in the 2017 Bataan Memorial Death March. Last year proved to be a huge success and offered a great experience to those who volunteered.

The Bataan Memorial Death March challenges participants to a 26.2-mile march through the high desert terrain of White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), New Mexico. The event is scheduled for Sunday, March 19th. Any medical or non-medical individuals can volunteer. About 1/3 of the Bataan participants seek medical care throughout the course and the main tent receives a great deal of traffic (2012: ~700 patients, 2013: ~400 patients, 2014: 425 patients , 2015: 555 patients). Non-medical aid is just as critical. Those individuals will support the function of the main tent by registering/discharging, tracking patients, running information between the tents, and all other duties as assigned. Meals and a t-shirt will be provided the day of the event.

Please join us in commemorating the World War II heroes.
