Phoenix, Ariz. - eVisit, a telemedicine software company based in Arizona, is proud to sponsor the 2016 Phoenix Marathon, hosted by the City of Mesa.

Dr. Glen McCracken, Co-Founder and President of eVisit, will be serving as Medical Director for the event.

The event is specially designed to showcase the City of Mesa and highlight the community. Along with a beautiful course and exciting rewards, the race benefits runners through the Phoenix Marathon Foundation.
