Team BMC for the Boston Marathon
Thanks to John Hancock Financial, Team BMC—for the past 14 years—has proudly participated in Boston’s historic Marathon. To date, the program has raised more than $3.8 million for Boston Medical Center, recruiting hundreds of committed marathoners from all levels of experience who are excited to cross the finish line as a member of Team BMC.
Run with 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
Funds raised will support BMC's capital campaign which will include the much needed improvements, and expansion of our Emergency Department. Boston Medical Center has the busiest, most experienced and, by any measure, top Level I Trauma Center in New England, giving those seriously injured the best chances for survival. We proudly handle more than two-thirds of Boston’s major trauma cases annually—twice the number of all other hospitals in the city combined. Your involvement will undoubtedly allow BMC to continue providing exceptional care, without exception to all who pass through its doors.
How we support you:
The BMC staff work hand-in-hand with our runners to assure your success. Each member of Team BMC is supported throughout all aspects of training and fundraising. The Boston Marathon Program is a major priority for our staff, the entire BMC community and our board of trustees and philanthropic trust.
