Fifteen runners will be lacing up their sneakers, training hard and representing South Shore Health as they run the 2020 Boston Marathon. With each passing mile, the team will be raising money for patients in need of world-class health care on the South Shore.

South Shore Health Foundation is proud to be an official Partner of John Hancock in the Marathon Non-Profit Program. Thanks to this ongoing partnership, this is the ninth year South Shore Health will field a Boston Marathon team. Last year’s team raised a record-breaking $216,000, which pushed the team’s eight-year fundraising total to more than $1.2 million for care in our community!

This year, Team South Shore Health runners have chosen to fundraise for behavioral health or cancer care services and programs. Runners will earmark their fundraising in support of one of the following programs/services:

  • Supporting the implementation of behavioral health and substance use disorder services and initiatives within the Grayken Center for Treatment at South Shore Health. 
  • Cancer care at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital.
