By joining Team InterVol and registering to run in the 2017 Marine Corps Marathon, I committed to raising the necessary funds to support their worldwide healthcare initiatives.
With decades of knowledge, dozens of successful missions, and hundreds of connections across the globe to draw from, InterVol's medical missions are planned and executed to benefit both provider and patient with the best possible outcomes.

InterVol has served more than 70 countries worldwide. From Borneo to Bosnia and everywhere in between, InterVol continues to ship medical supplies around the world to those who need it the most.
InterVol's greatest challenges still remain, finding the funding to ship the supplies and equipment collected to those in need around the world.
By running to support InterVol, I'll feel the pride and patriotism of racing through our nation's capital with thousands of Marines cheering me on, and also contribute to InterVol's life-saving efforts across the globe.
All proceeds help InterVol continue to recover and redistribute medical supplies and equipment, as well as provide undeveloped communities with quality, sustainable healthcare through the provision of medical professionals and aspiring educators.
InterVol began in the late '80s when our founder, Dr. Ralph Pennino, saw firsthand while doing volunteer work in developing nations that what they most desperately needed were things we throw away every day: unused medical supplies and functioning medical equipment. What started as a small collection of rescued items now fills two Rochester, NY, warehouses, totaling 20,000 square feet! In addition to the recovery program, co-founder Dr. Timothy O’Connor, along with Dr. Pennino, recognized the local medical community's desire to do even more. Begun with just a small group of doctors, nurses, and allied health personnel interested in volunteering their services, the concept evolved into our Volunteer Medical Professionals Program, which is active today in countries all over the world.
