Red Sox Foundation Boston Marathon Team
The Red Sox Foundation became an official charity partner of the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) in 2012 with only 9 runners. Thanks to the support of the Boston Athletic Association, The Red Sox Foundation receives a limited number of charity numbers to raise funds for its charitable programming each year. The runners who receive a number for the Boston Marathon through an official 501c3 charity, must fundraise a pre-determined amount set by the B.A.A. in order to eligible to run in the Boston Marathon.
The B.A.A.’s Official Charity Program has raised more than $140 million for charities since its inception. In 2015, the Red Sox Foundation Marathon Team raised $171,675 which brings the team’s total to $448,840 since 2012.
Funds raised from the RSF Marathon team support the Red Sox Scholars and RBI Youth Baseball/Softball programs, New England Red Sox Service Scholarship, and Massachusetts Little League Initiative serving at-risk children and families.
We are proud to have such an amazing group of runners on our 2016 marathon team. This year our 30 runners come from 13 different states and have completed a combined 132 marathons. We have full confidence that each runner will successfully cross the finish line in April and look forward to supporting them every step of the way.
