EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
Run with Greater Boston PFLAG to Make It Better Now! Join our 2013 Boston Marathon RunRaising Team
Are you an avid runner, or maybe you are someone who has running in the Boston Marathon on their bucket list? Have you tried to compete but just can’t quite qualify for the marathon? Maybe you know someone like this? If you answer yes to any of these questions, have we got a Bib for you! That’s right, we were awarded four 2013 Boston Marathon Bibs and are looking for people who want to RunRaise for Greater Boston PFLAG in support of our life-changing work.
Each year countless individuals in Boston and beyond benefit by John Hancock's Boston Marathon Non-Profit program. For the first time ever, Greater Boston PFLAG applied for and has been awarded four 2013 Boston Marathon Bibs to use as fundraisers for supporting our ant-bullying and education programs that help create environments of understanding so that all people can live with dignity and respect. We are grateful that John Hancock accepted our application – now we need to fulfill the obligations that come along with this unique charitable giving program and highly visible position. We are looking for dedicated, enthusiastic and committed runners (and their individual RunRaising Team members) to help us achieve a minimum of $5k per bib. Sounds like a lot? Not really. The average amount raised per runner is closer to $7k, so don’t worry… this is a very reachable goal.
You might be saying to yourself “I’m a runner, not a fundraiser!” No worries – I’m a fundraiser and not a runner, so this is a perfect a match! We have many tools of support for our RunRaisers, including John Hancock’s centralized online fundraising platform through a partnership with CrowdRise™, an innovative online fundraising web site for individuals, charities and events. When you join our Greater Boston RunRaising Team, you will have your own page, publicity templates, one-on-one support from me, and so much more.
This is a very unique opportunity for us and we are very grateful to have been chosen by John Hancock. Now all we need are four runners (Hooya!! I mean three … we just signed on our first runner)! Our RunRaisers raise not only money, but raise hope for LGBT Youth and their families, friends and allies; every step is a commitment and a promise to the parents, friends and families we serve. As a Greater Boston PFLAG RunRaiser, you will join more than 1,000 runners who help people from around our area live better lives by raising millions of dollars for other local organizations. Their (and your) relentless determination and generosity lifts us, and reveals just how much power a runner’s promise can hold
