The Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon

Boston Medical Center was excited to collaborate with Columbia Threadneedle Investments and the Boston Triathlon as the official charity partner for the 2023 Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon. Thanks to the commitment of our Team BMC athletes and the generosity of their donors, we raised more than $50,000! These funds allow us to go beyond world-class medical care to address underlying barriers to health. Through programs that provide patients with connections to housing, healthy food, financial empowerment, and more, we are reimagining healthcare.


Why Join

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind race experience

This race is Boston’s only triathlon and captures the city’s essence—historic, scenic, fun and exciting! Swim in Dorchester Bay, bike through car-free streets, and run along Southie’s shoreline. Choose from multiple race options including: distance, relay teams, and a novice swim start for new triathletes.

Impact the Boston community and beyond

Triathletes can choose to donate or fundraise for Boston Medical Center. All funds raised support BMC’s innovative efforts to advance health equity and close outcome gaps linked to race and wealth.

BMC has long recognized that much of what impacts a patient’s overall health goes well beyond traditional medicine. We believe that good health care is a human right and are working to ensure that everyone has the resources and opportunities to live the life they envision.

With the support of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, the Boston Triathlon, and people like you, we can:

  • expand safety-net programs: nutritious food, safe housing, reliable transportation, and so much more
  • build upon community partnerships and equity programming with a goal of providing opportunities for economic mobility through career training, job placement, and education
  • improve health outcomes for healthier people, families and communities
