The minimum fundraising goal for the One Fund Team team is $8,000 per runner.
The 2014 Boston Marathon field, which was been expanded to 36,000 to accommodate non-finishers in last years race, has been essentially full since late September. But if you still want to run this year’s iconic race from Hopkinton to Boston, there’s still one last chance. The Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the race, has made available to One Fund Boston a limited number of entries to run this year’s race.
One Fund Boston, the non-profit that supports victims of the terrorist bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon, is creating a One Fund Team for the 2014 Boston Marathon. One Fund Team runners will be supported and trained by the coaches and staff at Marathon Sports, the running shop on Boylston Street near the finish line of the marathon that suffered considerable damage when the first bomb went off. Marathon Sports employees were among the first responders to aid victims of the initial blast.
Applications for the One Fund Boston Team are due by 5 p.m. on Jan. 7. The required fundraising minimum is set at $8,000 per runner, while the overall goal of the team is to raise $500,000. The team will be selected and finalized by Jan. 10.
