Our involvement in the Boston community increased significantly in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, including the creation of a mentorship program between our Team Semper Fi athletes and the bombing survivors. The Semper Fi Fund has been proud to be a part of the Boston Marathon over the past few years with many members of Team Semper Fi and our Community Athletes competing in this historic race as a testimony to the fortitude of Boston.
Now, we’re thrilled to announce that our association with the Boston Marathon has reached a whole new level: The Semper Fi Fund is honored to have been named one of 34 organizations selected to be part of the 2018 Boston Marathon Official Charity Program. “Through our official charity program, we provide invitational entries to the Boston Marathon to select non-profit organizations,” the Boston Marathon website explains. “Organizations use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise funds for their cause.
“For selection into our official charity program, the Boston Athletic Association greatly values organizations that strengthen our local community and align with our mission of promoting a healthy lifestyle through sports, especially running.”
We want to thank everyone at the Boston Marathon for this honor and opportunity. The Semper Fi Fund is looking forward to building our marathon team and taking on the streets of Boston on April 16, 2018.
Thank you very much for reaching out to us regarding joining the Semper Fi Fund Team for the 2018 Boston Marathon.
