CHARITY BIBS

WHAT ARE CHARITY BIBS ?

Charity Bibs are opportunities for individuals to secure participation at the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2018, especially if they have missed the registration date or have been unable to qualify for the event. Participating non profits have a limited number of charity bibs available with them. These bibs are unique as they can be used for any race category a participant wishes to participate in and are available at a premium with these NGOs. The intent is to provide a means for the non profit to build new relationships and raise funds for their causes.


HOW DO I CHOOSE THE CHARITY?

As and when charities register with United Way Mumbai they would be listed  here. Each charity organisation has an independent page which details their work, contact number and charity bib availability status.  

HOW DO I OBTAIN A CHARITY BIB? 

First, an individual needs to decide which cause and registered NGO they wish to support. Once this is decided, interested runners will have to directly connect with the desired charity organisation to secure a bib. The contact details of registered NGOs will be available on the NGO page. 

The NGO will guide you on the process to get the bib.

Please Note:

  • The bibs are provided to the NGO to enable them to raise funds for their work. Each of them will have their own target amounts for the bibs. The page lists the number of bibs available with them
  • Please do not donate on the NGO page for a bib. Bib related donations are done entirely offline via cheque/DD.


I WANT TO RUN, BUT THERE ARE NO CHARITY BIBS AVAILABLE.


If you wish to run for a cause and find that there are no more bibs available with any NGO, you can still avail of UWM's fundraising pages to secure a charity bib, through the fundraising route. A fundraiser at the Change Runner level ( on raising Rs 1.5 lakh+) is entitled to a special, customised priority bib with various other privileges attached.

To start fundraising:

  • Choose a charity to support from list of participating charities
  • Create a free account for yourself on the Tata Mumbai Marathon Fundraising section (if you have done so last year, please use the registered email id to log back into your account)
  • Set the charity you wish to support and set a target you aim to raise for the selected charity
  • Enlist family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances to help you raise funds, which can be easily transferred via the online payment gateway. Also note, ALL of the funds raised online will be sent to the charity, without any transfer charges levied. 
  • Funds can also be raised offline by downloading the pledge details excel sheet (details soon) and submitting a filled pledge summary sheet (details soon), with all details filled in
  • You are entitled to a Change Runner bib once you have raised funds totaling up to INR 1,50,000. 
  • There are some incentives that UWM will donate when you reach different levels of fundraising. Read more about Fundraising Levels & Benefits here
