Charity Bib Program


Charity Bib Program

The Boilermaker’s mission is to change people’s lives in a positive way through health and movement. We use our various running events to provide people the opportunity to use the sport of road racing as a pathway to physical & mental fitness.

Our community has an abundance of other nonprofit organizations that also work diligently to change the lives of the groups of people they serve.

The Charity Bib program provides a limited number of bibs for the 5K & 15K, at no cost, to several selected nonprofit organizations. Each organization is then able to find participants who each commit to raising a minimum of $500 in order to receive one of their allotted bibs.

All money raised and collected by each organization is used to support their individual missions. Since its inception, this program has raised over $650,000 for our respective Charity Bib partners.
