Thank you to our Half Marathon Volunteers!
We are proud to say that the members of our volunteer community stepped forward and once again contributed to the B.A.A.'s mission of promoting healthy lifestyles through running events. We hope that you realize the significance of your role as a volunteer at our 14th annual B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, and as an active member of our great volunteer community.
Producing events that provide an opportunity for community members to come together to celebrate active lifestyles and competitive sports is an important part of our mission. This year alone, more than 60,000 runners trained for and participated in a B.A.A. event, and we hope Sunday's Half Marathon will inspire even more to begin running.
The B.A.A. now has a full set of athletic events ranging from the Mile to the Marathon, and volunteers are vital to all of our races and programs. Our volunteers truly give us the capacity to produce these events and are the means to our achievements.
Please accept our sincere thanks for helping to make the whole complement of races, especially the 14th annual B.A.A. Half Marathon, a great success!
