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-profits through our Marathon Non-Profit Program. Organizations use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise money for their cause. Our program, together with the Boston Athletic Association’s Charity Program, enabled organizations to raise $28.3 million dollars in 2015.
Once again, John Hancock is proud to offer this unique opportunity in 2016. Special consideration will be given to those organizations that can demonstrate the capacity and infrastructure to support their runners in their fundraising and training efforts.
