Want to run the Boston Marathon for Special Olympics Massachusetts? The Boston Marathon, believe it or not is not too far away. Many are training right now for this prestigious event and many train all year long. Would you like to be one of them? You may know that to run the Boston Marathon (legitimately) you have to qualify at one of several other road races. The exception is when the Boston Athletic Association allows certain charities to use these numbers for fundraising purposes. Special Olympics Massachusetts has had a long relationship with the BAA and their charitable program and once again, SOMA has several numbers for the Boston Marathon.
If you want to apply for a number to run the Boston Marathon and raise much-need dollars this coming April, please contact Nick Savarese at Nicholas.Savarese@specialolympicsma.org or at the New Yawkey Sports Training Center for Special Olympics Massachusetts at 508-485-0986. There is a fundraising minimum of $3,000. As they say in the infomercials, don’t delay…These will not last. What you won’t get is a free gift or two of the same thing. But wait…there’s more.
What you will get is an incredible feeling of personal achievement, and the pure satisfaction that you have raised some much-need money for the athletes of Special Olympics here in Massachusetts. Individuals with intellectual disabilities are living healthy, vibrant lives by their association with Special Olympics and you can help move that important health-related mission forward by taking this challenge.
