United Service Organization
PLEASE NOTE THAT UNITED SERVICE ORGANIZATION IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THEIR 128TH BOSTON MARATHON TEAM.
The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
Join Team USO and you’ll receive all the tools you need to succeed:
- Training tips and mentorship from previous Team USO runners
- A fully customizable and personalized fundraising website
- Support from USO staff for fundraising tips, tricks and strategies
- Fun marathon weekend festivities with a dedicated spot a Mile Marker 9 for friends and family to cheer you on the day of the race!

The USO is not part of the federal government. A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection.
