Team Magellan/Griffin

In response to the death of David Griffin there is a desire to create an opportunity for the Magellan community, together with anyone whose life has been touched by the Griffin family, to recognize all that the Griffin family has contributed to the community and to celebrate the life of David Griffin.  Therefore, we are officially announcing the formation of Team Magellan/Griffin to raise cancer awareness and funds for cancer research.  The vehicle for this opportunity will be The V Foundation and its involvement in the Rock & Roll Marathon scheduled for Sunday, April 12, 2015 in Raleigh.


Participation in Team Magellan/Griffin can take various forms: 

    • Fundraiser or contributor. To donate to the team, you can go to this link: or you can send a check to school made out to Magellan Charter School, and on the memo line put Team Magellan/Griffin.
    • Race day cheerleader. It would be great to see pockets of the Magellan community strategically located along the race course on Sunday, April 12. We hope to have t-shirts available for folks to wear and show support for the team.
    • Runner. Anyone who wants to run the marathon or half-marathon can be added to Team Magellan/Griffin under the Team V umbrella when you register. Please understand that if you do, you are committing to raise $750 for the V Foundation. If you are interested, check out the V Foundation website, click on "Events" and then on Rock n Roll Marathon for full information.


I would like to thank Dave Dahl, a Magellan founding board member, for putting this effort together and to thank in advance everyone for considering any form of participation in Team Magellan/Griffin.
