Boston Marathon

For the third consecutive year, the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program awarded West End House with bibs for the Boston Marathon. Our “Dawnn for Peace” marathon team, founded in memory of West End House alumna Dawnn Jaffier, plays a vital role in funding programs that support West End House youth.

Individuals who are interested in signing up for our 2019 team can get an early start by applying here.  Each year, we seek passionate individuals to represent our team and our mission. Each runner must commit to raise a minimum of $12,500 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.
