Boston Marathon®

Event Date:
Monday, April 15, 2024

Each year, Boston Medical Center is proud to have a team of athletes participating in the Boston Marathon® in support of our mission, and we are thrilled to be part of the 2024 Bank of America Boston Marathon® Official Charity Program. These dedicated Team BMC members choose to make their miles even more meaningful by fundraising for BMC’s efforts to close race-based health inequities and provide innovative services for patients and their families.


How To Join

Apply online. Our team will review your application and reach out with next steps. We have a limited number of spots, and athletes are accepted on a rolling basis. The fundraising minimum for accepted 2024 runners is $7,500.

Apply here if you are a 2024 Boston Marathon® qualifier and already have a bib from the B.A.A. The fundraising minimum for 2024 qualified runners is $1,000.


Your Impact

BMC is not only home to world-class clinicians and innovative treatments—we also are pioneers of programs that impact lasting good health. Over the years, more than 1,100 Team BMC athletes have raised more than $9.5 million to support BMC’s efforts to build a healthier Boston. Funds raised through the Boston Marathon® support our work—much of it not reimbursed by insurance–that drives equitable health outcomes. Here are just a few examples of what we can do with your help:

  • Economic Mobility: Health is inextricably tied to wealth. That’s why BMC offers financial coaching, free tax preparation services, assistance opening 529 college savings accounts, and more for families when they come in for appointments. Through tax assistance, our StreetCred program has helped more than 6,000 families get back over $14 million in returns.
  • Food as Medicine: Our hospital-based food pantry, the first-of-its-kind in the nation, distributes more than 1 million pounds of nutritious food to patients and their families each year. BMC’s Teaching Kitchen uses fresh ingredients to hold classes on healthy cooking and nutrition for our community. Some of the fresh produce used by these programs is grown at our very own Rooftop Farm.
  • Urgent Health Needs: BMC is a national leader in substance use disorder treatment, education, and research. The Grayken Center for Addiction comprises treatment and support programs for patients of all backgrounds. People in all 50 states and 187+ countries have accessed the Center’s trainings and digital resources.
