For the second year, the Hopkinton Area Land Trust is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a Boston Marathon Charity Bib by the Town of Hopkinton for the 2024 Boston Marathon. We are auctioning off this Charity Bib to a runner who commits to raising money for HALT to use for stewardship of our protected lands and building and maintaining trails.
We are now in search of runners who are interested in making a pledge to obtain our Bib. A Charity Bib runner need not meet the BAA age-banded qualifying time, nor do they need to apply for entry into the 2024 Boston Marathon. A Charity Bib runner’s only requirement is that they raise money for the charity that provides the Bib. The Town of Hopkinton has set a minimum bid amount of $6,000 for interested runners to participate in the Charity Bib auction.
If you are interested in making a minimum bid of $6000 for the HALT Bib, or know a runner who might be interested, please email Steve Frohbieter, HALT Vice President, by January 11 with your name, address and bid amount at firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful high bidder will be required to sign a commitment form for the full amount of their pledge.
HALT is excited to be involved in the Boston Marathon Charity Bib program and looks forward hearing from interested runners. Please send this notice to others who might be interested.
