Natick, as one of the communities along the Boston Marathon route, gets a handful of coveted invitational bibs that it can dole out to nonprofits and municipal departments raising funds in support of programs and services that benefit the town. Individuals granted bibs through the non-profits or departments won’t need to be speedsters, but will need fundraising moxie—you’re required to collect $4,500.
Interested non-profits and municipal departments must submit a proposal by 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 21, 2022 to Donna Donovan, Office of the Town Administrator, 13 East Central St., Natick MA 01760 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must provide the following:
- Organization name, address, contact person, phone number and email address.
- Nature of the organization, types of program(s) offered, target population, how long the organization has been in business, and the organization’s Federal Tax ID number.
- Whether any prospective runners have already agreed to sponsor the organization. If so, please provide name and address of runner(s).
- Whether the organization has previously been sponsored by a Boston Marathon runner.
