The Town of Framingham received 25 invitational entries from the Boston Athletic Association for the April 21, 2014 running of the Boston Marathon.
Framingham Selectmen, at its meeting of Tuesday, Oct. 29, voted unanimously to revise the process for allocating the 25 Boston Marathon invitational entries.
On Thursday Dec. 5, the Town of Framingham held the random selection drawing to choose the 25 members of Team Framingham for the upcoming Boston Marathon.
The following Team Framingham runners were selected: Dorreen Dickinson, Katelyn Roche, Gail Gregory, Michele Tibbert, Mary Fitterer, Richard Coe, Cori Sage, Joseph Mazzola, Katherine Schneider, Michelle Itzkowitz, Melissa Wells, Brooks Church, David Wells, John Greeley, Laura Grome, Lorelei Capuzzi, Kevin Murphy, Brianna Stefanini, Vernon Turner, Suzanne Chiapowski, Stuart Hurowitz, Beth Lawson, Matthew Warren, Ellen Vedora and Joseph Kynoch.
Sixteen additional names were drawn to form an ordered “wait list." The “wait list” runners will be added to the team in the event a team member decides to drop out. At this time one “wait list” runner has already been named to the team.
The runners are in the process of selecting from one of the following six organizations to raise funds on behalf of:
- Boys and Girls Club of Framingham
- Framingham Education Foundation
- Framingham Youth Initiative (FYI) for the Arts
- Friends of the Callahan Senior Center
- Resiliency for Life
- Pearl Street Cupboard and Café
An update is being sent to the Team Framingham runners this week with important information on the BAA application process, training opportunities through the Greater Framingham Running Club, fundraising, and
equipment. Team meetings will be set up for January 2014.
