Run For Our Sons Requirements

In exchange for a race entry, PPMD requires each BMW Berlin Marathon team member to raise a minimum of $1,000. Your entry fee counts toward your fundraising minimum.

To help you reach your fundraising goal, PPMD provides fundraising tips, a personalized webpage and other fundraising tools. Our fundraising minimums are determined on a race-by-race basis in order to recover costs and maximize the funding going directly to help those living with Duchenne.

Fundraising minimum due date: September 7, 2018

By joining the RFOS team for this race, you are personally pledging to raise the required fundraising minimum. If your minimum has not been met by the date specified above, PPMD staff will contact you to secure your position on the team with a credit card. You will then have four weeks after the date of the race to continue to collect donations, after which time you will be asked to make up the difference between the minimum and what you have raised.
