For the 6th consecutive year, West End House is partnering with the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program. We are excited to have selected four mission-driven individuals to join our “Dawnn for Peace” Marathon Team. Please contribute to our Team’s success by becoming a supporter today!

With a reduced field in 2021, our team members are participating in a once in a lifetime opportunity to compete in one of the most prestigious races worldwide. By raising funds for West End House, our four runners will honor the legacy of Dawnn Jaffier and impact the lives of thousands of young people across Boston. Our Team members are receiving the following benefits:

  • Effective fundraising strategies to meet your $9,000 goal
  • Connection to Boston Road Runners for training with long-runs
  • West End House swag
  • Team “Dawnn for Peace” official marathon singlet
  • Opportunities to engage with our mission-driven programs pre-and post-race

The West End House “Dawnn for Peace” Marathon Team plays a vital role in funding programs that support West End House youth. Dawnn Jaffier was a lifelong member of the West End House whose passion was improving the lives of young people across Boston. Before becoming an innocent victim of violence, Dawnn was a mentor and role model for hundreds of young people at the West End House and beyond. Learn more about Dawnn’s life and legacy here.
