This journey began shortly after Jeff's life changed on April 15, 2013. We began selling T-shirts and wristbands to raise money for our friend. And thanks to the overwhelming response and support from people around the world (literally), proceeds have totaled just over $10,000!!!
Now we want to RUN for Jeff!!
The Boston Athletic Association issued 467 invitational entries to individuals who submitted a short essay on how they were "personally and profoundly impacted" by the events that fateful day. 5 of our essays were chosen. So now, Team Bauman is 11 strong. We will run in Jeff's honor. And although no fundraising is required of us, we would still like try :-)
Jeff would really like to give back to a few organizations who have helped him so much in his rehabilitation and recovery, primarily The Wiggle Your Toes Foundation and The Challenged Athletes Foundation. Please help us reach our $10,000 goal! Below are links to donate online. 501(c) tax deductible receipts available.
ALL proceeds & donations made will be going to the organizations who have aided Jeff. This is a NON-PROFIT effort!
(If you are a current bib holding runner for the 2014 Boston Marathon and would like to join Team Bauman, please contact us!!)
