Runner Singlet OR T-Shirt & Jacket

By now, everyone should have received their team gear – we hope you like it! If you have issues with sizing, please alert us ASAP so we can find a solution!

Fundraising Tip

Update your network about your journey, tell them how excited you are to cross the finish line on April 18, and thank them for their support. Most importantly, create a sense of urgency to give. For example, “I’m now less than $XX away from achieving my fundraising goal of $XX. Please consider making a gift of [$100/$50/$25/any amount] to support my run for the Brigham Stepping Strong Marathon Team!”
