Boston Marathon

For the fourth consecutive year, the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program has awarded West End House with bibs for the Boston Marathon. The generous support of John Hancock this year will allow us to select four runners for our “Dawnn for Peace” marathon team, founded in memory of West End House alumna Dawnn Jaffier. Our Marathon Team plays a vital role in funding programs that support West End House youth. Learn more about Dawnn’s life and legacy here.

Each year, we seek passionate individuals to represent our team and our mission. Each runner must commit to raise
a minimum of $15,000 for West End House, with preference given to applicants who commit to higher fundraising goals,
as it directly impacts our chances of being selected in subsequent years. This year’s Boston Marathon will take place on Monday, 4/15/19.

The application is now open and closes on November 30, 2018 at 11:59pm. If you have any questions, please contact
Sarah MacPherson at or 617-870-7513.
