Cops For Kids With Cancer “Sponsored” Runners

To run in the Boston Marathon you need to have a fast enough qualifying time – or you can run for one of the official charities. As an official Charity Partner of the Boston Marathon we receive a small number of “invitational” entries to the Boston Marathon. We use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise at least $10,000 for our cause.
