The running community is an extremely tight-knit group and as comrades in the industry, the 2013 Cellcom Green Bay Marathon will provide runners, spectators and volunteers the opportunity to pay tribute to the lives impacted at the 2013 Boston Marathon.
All participants in Sunday’s distance events will receive a blue and yellow ‘We Run as One’ silicone wristband in their race packets. The wristbands will also be available for purchase at the expo on race weekend with one hundred percent of the proceeds going to One Fund Boston, Inc., a charity formed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
Temporary wristbands will be distributed to volunteers and spectators at the start line and finish line areas on Sunday, May 19th. Prior to the start of the distance events, all participants and spectators will be invited to raise their arms in unity and observe 26 seconds of silence in memory of the lives lost and the lives that were forever changed at the 2013 Boston Marathon.
Marathons are a culmination of individual victories, a celebration of vibrancy and health. We want the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon and marathons around the country to continue to stand as such.
A special thanks to Cellcom, Prevea Health and Electric City Printing for underwriting the silicone and temporary wristbands.
