John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon


Interested Non-Profit Organizations:

John Hancock has been the principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon for over 30 years. The Company's continued support of the Boston Athletic Association, which has directed the race since 1897, ensures that the marathon remains a world-class event and an important facet of Boston's culture and heritage.

As part of our sponsorship, John Hancock donates hundreds of guaranteed entries each year to select non-profit organizations through our Marathon Non-Profit Program. Organizations use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise money for their cause.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program. An interest form for the 2018 program can be found here.
