4. Invitational recipients for 2014 Boston Marathon chosen
The Boston Athletic Association (“BAA”) makes invitational entries available to the towns along the route of the Boston Marathon. This is done as a way of thanking these communities for their coordination and cooperation during the Marathon. The 118th Boston Marathon will take place April 21. The goal of the invitational entries is to allow these communities to raise funds for charities and good causes.
The process for selecting recipients of an invitational entry was different this year from previous years. Rather than soliciting applications from charities only, the Board of Selectmen also accepted applications from individuals. Preference was given to Wellesley residents, as well as those individuals willing to run and raise funds for a Wellesley-based charity. Some individuals specified a Wellesley charity and others were willing to have the Board of Selectmen select a charity for them. As a result, the Board was able to match up runners with charities to include as many runners and charities as possible. Below is the list of recipients for invitational entries for the 118th Boston Marathon:
Matt Ramsden – Jack’s Magic Bean Fund
Peter Lorenz – Lovelane Special Needs Horseback Riding
Brennan Mullin – Wellesley Scholarship Foundation
Bo Julie Crowley – Friends of Wellesley METCO
