Cortina Productions was honored to contribute to this year’s Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon with an interactive kiosk that let marathon participants share with the city their reason for running.
Conceptualized in 2001 by two Oklahoma businessmen on their morning run, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon pays tribute to those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever by the tragic Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995.
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon begins at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, winds through the Capitol and historic Oklahoma City neighborhoods, and ends in Automobile Alley. Along the way, runners pass 168 banners–each bearing the name of an individual lost in the bombing. Voted top 12 ‘must-run’ marathons in the world by Runner’s Magazine, the OKC Memorial Marathon has become the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum’s largest fundraiser with 25,731 participants in 2017.
Thanks to the strategic planning of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum staff and a group of volunteer chairmen, the maximum amount of proceeds generated from the Memorial Marathon benefit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
