Why Join Us

There are a lot of benefits to running with Team BMC, and we have a lot fun, too! Some of the great benefits we provide are:

  • A complimentary training program with the one of the best trainers in Boston
  • Team BMC apparel including t-shirts, running singlets and more
  • Custom fundraising tips and tricks
  • Plenty of content and fun events that help you get to know BMC
  • Private warm-up space at the start line in Hopkinton and private family meeting space at the Finish Line in Copley
  • Your own personal BMC cheering sections along the way

As the safety-net hospital of Greater Boston, it is our duty to provide high-quality, low-cost care to our patients. BMC is devoted to caring for all our patients’ needs, medical and otherwise, and has spent considerable time developing critical services that are not reimbursable. We choose to execute these programs because they are in the best interest of our patients and provide the best possible care. Our Food Pantry is a great instance of this, where we have dedicated years of providing prescription-based food to BMC families because it is an important part of a person’s overall health. As is our Emergency Department and Level 1 Trauma Center which offer outstanding, nationally-recognized care to patients from all walks of life. These comprehensive approaches are only a couple examples placing us in the position to lead the market in delivering integrated care—the future of health care.

For more than 20 years, our donors have stood by our side, helping us lead the charge in our medical and social endeavors so we can change the trajectory of our patients’ lives. Change of this magnitude is only possible when we come together, and we welcome you to join us in our pursuit. Your support is integral to the existence of programs and services our patients rely—and thrive—on, with many depending solely on philanthropic support. By participating with Team BMC, you are showing your commitment to the entire city of Boston.

If you want to be part of an exciting and engaging team, and help one of Boston’s most important institutions, Team BMC is the marathon program for you. Contact us at for more information or questions about the program.
