Opportunities to volunteer at the B.A.A. Half Marathon
Thank you for your support of the 16th annual B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. It was a day that started unpleasantly with light rain, and devolved into wretched weather. Neither driving rain nor wind daunted any of you, our loyal volunteers, who came out and stayed to help all athletes. It is that sense of duty and dedication that allows participants to know that they will be treated and taken care of in a manner that meets their very high expectations of the work done by B.A.A. volunteers.
Participants were met with supportive faces from the moment they picked up their race packets and shirts at Boston Marathon adidas RunBase, as they made their way to Franklin Park, and as they raced along the course through the Finish Line. Your energy was felt amidst the challenges of a rainy and windy day. The participants, spectators and B.A.A. staff owe the successes of the day to you.
The B.A.A. strives to engage with the local community, and offers year-round opportunities to further our mission of promoting healthy, active lifestyles through running. The support of loyal volunteers, like you, makes these goals a reality, just as we saw on Sunday. Through this event alone, you supported the efforts of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute team in surpassing their fundraising goal of $750,000, raising over $762,000!
Thank you again for your time and enthusiasm in support of the B.A.A. Your dedication fosters a positive impact on the neighborhoods through which we run, and your devotion (rain or shine!) is a signature part of our events. We look forward to having you join us for many more years to come!
