Boilermaker to Launch Charity Bib Program
Posted on December 17, 2012
December 17, 2012- For the 2013 race the Boilermaker Road Race will be offering a charity bib program to support local non-profits. The Boilermaker will be setting aside 200 bibs for organizations to use to entice participants to raise pledges.
The bibs can be utilized for the 15k and 5k races or 3 Mile Walk. Participants must commit to raise a minimum of $500 for the selected non-profits. The bibs will be provided to the charity of choice at no cost.
"We saw this as a wonderful opportunity to use the power of the Boilermaker to positive chance in our community" said Tim Reed, president of the Boilermaker. "We have seen the great results of programs like this throughout the country."
Organizations selected will be in charge of the administration of the program including the collection of pledge money. In addition, they must have a physical presence in Central New York and align with the mission of the Boilermaker. A maximum of 50 bibs will be available to qualifying charities.
If registrants are participating in the 15k race they must finish in two and a half hours.
In January the race will formally roll out the charity bib program.
