If you've been training for the 2009 Boston Marathon but have not secured a number for the legendary race, the Patriots have some great news for you! The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation has a limited number of invitational entries into the 2009 marathon, which guarantees entry into the race and waives all qualifying requirements.
We are pleased to announce that this year, all funds generated by the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation Boston Marathon Team will support the Foundation's latest health and fitness initiative, the HOPSports program. In the upcoming season, the New England Patriots will travel throughout New England to provide this highly captivating and interactive digital fitness program to the most disadvantaged schools and after-school programs.
All participants who are selected will run on behalf of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and will be asked to raise a minimum of $3,000. The fundraising minimum of $3,000 should be considered a step to even higher fundraising goals. We seek team members who are truly interested in helping to raise maximum funds to ensure the youth and families of the New England region receive the maximum amount of support.
Members of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation Marathon Team will be provided with fundraising tips and information pertaining to the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, as well as have incentive prizes for reaching certain fundraising goals.
