“It’s a true grass-roots effort. It’s really incredible the people who show up,” says John Santa, organizer of the Marathon Jam benefit at American Legion Post 6 in Chapel Hill on Saturday. Last year’s jam raised $15,000 for the Fisher House at Fort Bragg. The jams have spread to other cities, But not all last for 12 hours like Chapel Hill’s. “Other cities make more than us,” Santa says, “but nobody plays more than us.”
