A 12-hour marathon of bluegrass, country, contemporary and all time favorites performed by local musicians to raise money for the North Carolina Fisher Houses.
The Chapel Hill event has raised over $150,000 and spinoff, concurrent events worldwide have generated over $500,000 for Fisher Houses! It all started right here in Chapel Hill.
As part of our continuing efforts to provide support and service to local veterans and our community, the Chapel Hill American Legion 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.
