Anyone who visits the legendary Fenway Park – or watches a game on TV – knows exactly where the famous John Hancock signature stands. High above the center field scoreboard, the John Hancock sign has become an iconic symbol in one of America’s most storied ballparks.
For more than 20 years, the Sox and John Hancock have worked closely together for the benefit of the team, the business, and the community.
During each Red Sox home game, John Hancock’s Hat’s Off to Heroes recognizes a United States military service member with four tickets to the game and special recognition on top of the Red Sox dugout. No matter the score on the field, Hat’s Off to Heroes honorees consistently draw a standing ovation from fans and players alike.
John Hancock is the presenting sponsor for Boston Marathon Weekend at Fenway Park. Each year John Hancock employee runners fundraise for area charities. These runners are invited to attend a Red Sox game during the weekend and are recognized by running a lap around the field in a pre-game ceremony at Fenway Park. In addition, top fundraisers running on behalf of charitable organizations who participate in the the John Hancock Non-Profit Boston Marathon program are also invited to enjoy a special Boston Red Sox experience over marathon weekend to thank them for their efforts.
For more than twenty years, John Hancock has served as the presenting sponsor of Fenway Fantasy Day to Benefit the Jimmy Fund. Participants have the opportunity to bat at home plate, run the bases, and field at Fenway Park. Families and friends of participants are invited to watch throughout the day from the stands. Since 1992, Fantasy Day has raised over $7.5 million to support the Jimmy Fund’s lifesaving mission of providing cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Since 2014 John Hancock has hosted Pedal Partners and their families at Fenway Park for a fun-filled pre-game reception with face painting, balloon animals, and arts and crafts. The families are then given tickets to enjoy the game.
Since 2014, John Hancock employees have been participating in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) by volunteering, riding or fundraising for life-saving cancer research.
