Marathon Jam at Chapel Hill – Feb 28

MARATHON JAM LEGIONOnce again we welcome founder John Santa and his fellow Marathon Jammers as they play music for 12 straight hours to raise money to support the families of injured soldiers at the American Legion.


John Santa reports, “Every single tax deductible penny we receive will stay here in North Carolina, as it has every year! Our total for six years is over $70,000 given to the Ft Bragg Fisher House and Marathon Jams nation wide will raise over $250,000 for Fisher Houses across the country in 2015! We are delighted to have had Marathon Jams in eighteen cities across the United States and in FOUR countries–the USA, Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa! This year we will be adding our FIFTH country when a Marathon Jam will be held for the first time in Viet Nam!”


The Marathon Jam is once again proud to partner with Quilts Of Valor, so come and celebrate as we make some great acoustic music and raise money and watch as we wrap our brave veterans in red, while and blue quilts!”
If you can’t make it, or just want to inspire us, you can contribute RIGHT NOW by going to!


You can share in the excitement by sponsoring a musician, or, if you have something we can read about a friend or loved one who served in the military, we can do that too.  John said, “Or better yet, come and read it yourself to all of us!”  Whether you’re a musician or just love music played from the heart for a wonderful cause, please plan to join us.


The American Legion Chapel Hill Post 6 has graciously donated the use of their facilities to the Marathon Jam for SEVEN YEARS in a row and as if THAT is not miracle enough, they are the ONLY location in Chapel Hill which has acres of FREE parking in the entire city!!
