Marathon Jam Returns Saturday

The 12th Annual Marathon Jam is at Chapel Hill Post 6 on the last Saturday, in February.  This year it is February 24, 2018.  It starts at 1 p.m. and goes non-stop to 1 a.m.  Come on in and join the fun.

The American Legion is very proud of the part we have have played in making the Marathon Jam a success by donating space and resources for the many musicians who perform. The Chapel Hill event has raised well over $150,000 and spinoff, concurrent events worldwide have generated over $500,000 for Fisher Houses!  It all started right here in Chapel Hill and is part of our 100 years of service to the many communities of these United States.

Chapel Hill Post No. 6 and the Legion Auxiliary has sponsored the Marathon Jam for Fisher House since 2006. 

What’s a Marathon Jam? It is local musicians joining together for a non-political jam to raise awareness and money for military families. They gather at the Chapel Hill American Legion Post at 1 p.m. and play non-stop for twelve hours. New musicians join in all day long to give others a break and the music continues.  Learn more
