Its organizers say the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is about more than running; it’s about celebrating life.
 
Sharing in that spirit, Arvest Bank in Oklahoma City was a proud participant of the 2017 event. More than 80 Arvest associates participated in this year’s race. 
 
Begun in 2001, with just less than 5,000 participants, this year’s race featured more than 25,000 runners and walkers from all 50 states and more than a dozen countries. Likewise, a huge corps of volunteers donate their time and energy so that the maximum amount of proceeds benefit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
 
“We here at Arvest our proud to do our small part to make this a successful event,” Arvest president Ron Witherspoon said. “We know the mission of the marathon is to celebrate life, honor the memories of those who died, and to show that each of us can make a difference through our actions. We always enjoy joining forces with our friends here in Oklahoma City and those who come from all over the country and world to participate.
 
The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is the sole beneficiary of Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon event proceeds, and the race is its largest fundraiser. Learn more.
