We are happy to announce that the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New England is proudly partnering with the John Hancock Non-Profit Boston Marathon Program for 2022! Last year, John Hancock nonprofit runners raised more than $10 million for over 140 different local organizations. $30,000 of this was generated by the incredible members of our 2021 Marathon Team!

To be considered for this once in a lifetime opportunity, please complete the 2022 Marathon Team Application by December 31st. Application is listed below. Runners will be selected on a rolling basis (so be sure to apply early!) by their ability to effectively raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities of New England.
