WHAT ARE CHARITY BIBS ?
Charity Bibs is one more opportunity for individuals to secure participation at the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2014. Most non-profits listed with us have a fixed 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. Such charity bibs will be available at a premium with these nonprofit organisations the proceeds going for the benefit of the chosen charity.
So, if you have missed the registration dates or have been unable to qualify for the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2015
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE CHARITY?
List of participating nonprofit organisations having such charity numbers, can be viewed in the participating non profit organisation section of our website http://unitedwaymumbai.org/ngo.htm.
This list will be updated everyday, as and when nonprofits register.
Each nonprofit organisation will have its charity bib availability status displayed on its page.
WHERE CAN I ANNOUNCE THAT I WANT TO RUN AND NEED A BIB?
In addition, to facilitate the charity bib procuring/donating process the UWM charity community section has a simple to use interface, to connect interested runners to charities. The Charity community can be accessed here http://unitedwaymumbai.org/charity_community.htm

WILL UNITED WAY OF MUMBAI HELP IN CONTACTING THE NONPROFIT?
Runners have to directly connect with the nonprofit organisation for a charity bib. United Way of Mumbai will put up the details of the nonprofits here on the website. Each nonprofit organisation has a specific aim and target for the bibs available with them. They will guide you specifically on the process to get you your charity running spot.
I WANT TO RUN, BUT THERE ARE NO BIBS AVAILABLE
Our website also enables individuals to create fundraising pages for themselves for a cause they support. This is separate from the charity bibs.
Through your free online fundraising page you can easily and instantly ask the support of your friends and relatives in helping you raise FUNDS for the nonprofit organisation you support. This can be supplemented offline by downloading the pledge kit from the site. The pledge kit contains an excel sheet and a summary sheet along with several tips and pointers on how to go about fundraising in a simple manner for your offline effort as well.
All funds raised via the online pages will be sent 100% to the nonprofit supported. UWM will bear all payment gateway charges incurred on the same.
There are some incentives that United Way of Mumbai will donate when you reach different levels of fundraising. Please go through the Charity Structure (http://unitedwaymumbai.org/downloads/Charity-Structure-SCMM-2015.pdf).
