The purpose of this event is to provide safe, friendly exercise for as many people as possible while raising funds to help maintain and operate our ambulance boat, Sea Stretcher. No entry fees are charged, so please obtain as many sponsors as possible.

Because of the billing costs, the minimum total amount for each sponsor is $5.00. You must PRINT the exact and complete NAME and MAILING ADDRESS for each of your sponsors.  You will not be required to collect from any of your sponsors; they will be billed soon after the marathon is completed.  The Fishers Island Fire Department is a 501(c)(3) entity and as such, all contributions qualify as tax-deductible. No service or product will be given as a result of donations.
