2020 - North Olympic Discovery Marathon

June 7th, 2020 Port Angeles, WA US 98362 Directions

The Port Angeles Marathon Association (PAMA) is a non-profit 501c4. The Port Angeles Marathon Association gives back to the communities of Sequim and Port Angeles in many ways including offering the Kids Marathon program to all Clallam County elementary schools and working with civic groups, service clubs and school teams and programs by offering cash donations in return for volunteer time. Over the past 5 years, PAMA donated more than $70,000 to local organizations. Many runners align with a charity organization and gather pledges. Running for a charity not only helps raise funds for a good cause, it also helps motivate and inspire runners because they feel accountable to their sponsors and organization.

The North Olympic Discovery Marathon is proud to work with a few local charities including; Run for Joe, Colton’s Army and Mended: Orphans and Widows Fund.


Run for Joe

The Captain Joseph House was found to care for the families of the Fallen, to help them honor, respect and remember their loved one as they resume their lives. Founded as a living memorial to Captain Joseph William Schultz, the Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that provides respite and educational support to the families of the Fallen by extending the continuum of care available through other military, religious, private and non-profit organizations.

The Captain Joseph House is a 1910 craftsman home maintained with the charm and comfort of an old-world English estate nestled in beautiful Port Angeles. The Foundation is nearing the completion of an extensive renovation of the home where Gold Star Families will stay and community to civilian life.

Team Living Water

Team Living Water runs on behalf of the 663 million people who endure life without access to safe drinking water. We run for the kids missing school because they are sick with water-borne illnesses. We run for mothers who walk long distances every day to collect water from unsafe streams.

We support the work of Living Water International, a faith-based global development organization that provides whole communities and regions with enough safe, accessible, reliable water to significantly improve the lives of the people who live there. Living Water also connects with local leaders, churches and schools to promote improved hygiene and sanitation systems. Team Living Water will keep running until everyone has access to safe water. We endure so they won’t have to!

Colton’s Army

Colton’s Army started as a movement of prayer warriors and supporters who came together to LOVE a cancer hero named Colton. Our journey has been long and bumpy, but it has led us to this point where we feel it is ‘the right time’ to do something more – so we have created a Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild!

Our guild is about HOPE and Making this fight Matter by giving back, paying it forward and letting our orange hearts show the kindness and love that we have been blessed with along the way. All while raising a RUCKUS to CURE cancer through our efforts of awareness and fundraising.

Mended Orphans and Widows (OAW) Fund

Providing needs in the midst of loss.

In 2016 the Mended Orphans and Widows Fund was founded. It was formed to be a pool of resources that would immediately begin to meet the most basic needs of those in distress – primarily children without parents and those who have experienced the loss of a spouse.

Christ has always been drawn to those in need and he repeatedly directs us to do the same. Community happens when the focus is placed on taking care of one another, especially those that don’t have the means to support themselves. The goal of the Orphans and Widows Fund is to always have a source to draw from to meet the needs of those in distress. This fund will have designated overseers to field requests and disperse resources.
