Charity Runners (Filled for 2012)
Our team has received 30 charity race entries from John Hancock that are exempt from the strict time qualifying requirements of the Boston Marathon. In exchange for one of these entries, our Charity Runners commit to raising money for the Hoyt Foundation, an IRS 501(c)(3) charity.
- On-line training advice and encouragement from our coach and three time Boston Marathon champion, Uta Pippig
- Dinner with Dick and Rick Hoyt, as well as coach Uta Pippig, at the John Hancock/Team Hoyt Pasta Dinner at the Sheraton Boston
- Special invitation to the Team Hoyt inspirational presentation at the Boston Marathon Expo
- Personal on-line fundraising Web pages and fundraising assistance at www.crowdrise.com
- Awards to the top fundraisers
- Custom Team Hoyt/John Hancock/Boston Marathon team running apparel provided by John Hancock
- Starting line accommodations at a private home adjacent to the starting corrals
Each year, our marathon team receives more interest from Qualified Runners. The minimum fundraising requirement for Qualified Runners is $1,500. Our Qualified Runners enjoy the same benefits as the Charity Runners (above). NOTE: Team Hoyt is still accepting applications for qualified runners.
