Over the last nine years, our Boston Marathon team has raised close to $1.4 million for care in our community. We are extremely grateful to John Hancock for their continued support.

This exclusive opportunity will allow limited runners to apply to run on behalf of Team South Shore Health for the in-person race on Monday, October 11, 2021. Members of the community who are running the Virtual Experience will also have the opportunity to fundraise on behalf of South Shore Health.

All runners on the South Shore Health Boston Marathon Team will have the opportunity to raise funds for either the behavioral health and substance use disorder programs within the Grayken Center for Treatment or the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital. Two inspiring programs delivering hope to thousands of South Shore families.
