Boston Marathon 2014
Applications Available for Individuals and Charitable Organizations
The Boston Athletic Association (“BAA”) makes invitational entries available to the towns along the route of the Boston Marathon. This is done as a way of thanking these communities for their coordination and cooperation during the Marathon. The 118th Boston Marathon will take place on Monday, April 21, 2014. The goal of the invitational entries is to allow these communities to raise funds for charities and good causes.
The year, the Board of Selectmen (“BOS”) will be accepting applications from individuals committing to raise funds for a specific Wellesley charitable organization, and charitable organizations that wish to receive funds through the invitational entries. For individual applications, preference will be given to Wellesley residents running for a charity that benefits Wellesley residents; for charitable organization applications, preference will be given to charities that benefit Wellesley residents. For those individuals who do not designate a specific charity, please state whether you are willing to raise funds for a charity selected by the BOS.
