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 hope to inspire the community to join us in this mission, and the Charity Bib Program plays a vital role.

The Charity Bib program provides a limited number of bibs for the 5K & 15K, at no cost, to several selected local nonprofit organizations to use as fundraising incentives. 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 $700,000 for our respective Charity Bib partners.

How It Works

If you want to run for one of our Charity partners:

  • You must commit to raising a minimum of $500 for the organization.
  • You will be awarded one of the charity’s available bibs as long as the minimum donation is met.
  • Your bib can be used in the event of your choice: either the 15k or 5k race.
  • You may contact the organization directly by clicking on their name below or contact us and we’ll connect you.

If you want to support one of our Charity partners:

  • Make a donation to support the runner or charity of your choice!
