WHAT ARE CHARITY BIBS?

Charity Bibs are opportunities for individuals to secure participation at the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2020, especially if they have missed the registration date or have been unable to qualify for the event. Participating NGOs 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 wish to participate in and are available at a premium with these NGOs. The intent is to provide a means for the nonprofits to build new relationships and raise funds for their causes.

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE CHARITY?

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

HOW DO I OBTAIN A CHARITY BIB?

First, an individual need to decide the cause and select the registered NGO they wish to support from United Way Mumbai’s website. 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 charity bib available with them.

Please Note:

  • The bibs are provided to the NGO to enable them to raise funds for their work. Each of them will have the requirement of different donation amounts based on their project need. Their page lists the number of bibs available with them.
  • Please DO NOT DONATE DIRECTLY on the NGO page for a bib. After you have spoken with the NGO representative and decided the donation amount, they will share a unique link for an online payment for the bib. Alternately, you can send a cheque and your information to the NGO.
  • Once your donation is received, the NGO will provide you the voucher code and registration link
  • Interested individuals can also avail a bib by raising the required amount of funds for the NGO/s of their choice until 26th December, 2019. To know more, view the fundraiser privileges here. 

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

If you wish to run for a cause and interested in raising funds, you can avail of UWM's fundraising opportunity to secure a bib through the fundraising route. A fundraiser at the Bronze category (on raising INR 10,000) gets an opportunity to avail of a Dream Run bib. Similarly, on reaching the Silver level (on raising INR 50,000) s/he gets an opportunity to avail of a bib for any race category, post closure of open race category registration. In both cases, the event rules and race fees are applicable.  

If you are 21 years and below, up on raising INR 75,000 you will be entitled to avail of a complimentary bib of any race category provided the event rules (age and timing) are met.

Similarly, if you are above 21 years and up on raising INR 1.5 lakhs (Change Maker level) you will be entitled to a special Change Runner bib with your name printed on the bib, custom 6-digit number of your choice, priority line up across all race categories and various other privileges attached.
