Run With Us!

Have you always wanted to run the Boston Marathon? Do you like running and training with a meaning? The Play Brigade has the privilege of being a John Hancock charity team for the 2023 Boston Marathon.

Runners selected for our team will receive an official entry from John Hancock to represent The Play Brigade. We are associated with The Marathon Coalition which gives all runners access to training through organized runs, dedicated coaching, and training emails.

Each Play Brigade runner will commit to a minimum fundraising goal of $10,000 which is due April 24, 2023. Runners will be expected to post regular updates about their campaign on social media and/or through email & letter campaigns. Moneys can be raised through direct donations to the fundraising platform provided by John Hancock, social media campaigns, events, etc.

In addition to training and support for running, we are here to provide advice and support to help you achieve your fundraising goals along the way. Don’t let the numbers scare you. We have consistently seen runners more than double their goals.

If you are selected, we will ask you to confirm your spot within 24 hours of selection by setting up your personal fundraising page and making a $100 personal donation. This donation will count toward your fundraising commitment. We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.

Please let us know why you want to join our team and help us create inclusive opportunities in play, recreation and sports for people of all abilities!
