A reception was held on Tuesday evening to celebrate the accomplishments of the participants in the 2019 Boilermaker Charity Bib program.

74 runners took part in the Charity Bib Program on behalf of eleven non-profit organizations, raising nearly $40,000.

Participating runners committed to raising at least $500 for their organization. Ten participants raised over $750.

"On My Team16 was able to share so many stories about our runners and the challenges they have faced in dealing with pediatric cancer," said Jordan Sheridan of On My Team16, a 2019 Charity Bib organization. "Our runners were honored to compete in the race because somewhere out there is a child who couldn't do something like this. Truthfully, that is the best part about playing a role in the Charity Bib Program."

The program, which is in its 7th year, has raised over $600,000 for local non-profits.
