Team Bay Cove Part of A Record-Setting Fundraising Year for The Boston Marathon
In April, the six amazing members of Bay Cove’s Boston Marathon team raised more than $80,000 to support agency programs and services, once again utilizing race numbers obtained from our partners at the John Hancock Non-Profit Program. Now, we’ve learned that Team Bay Cove 2019 was part of a record-setting field of charity runners for the world-renowned road race.
John Hancock recently announced that Boston Marathon participants who ran on behalf of 297 non-profit organizations raised a record $38.7 million for charity through the 2019 race. The fundraising total represents an approximate 6-percent increase, or $2 million, over 2018 results.
"This fundraising record is a significant achievement that helps make our city and region a healthier, more equitable place," said Marianne Harrison, President and CEO, John Hancock. "I am proud that John Hancock's longstanding Boston Marathon sponsorship continues to drive meaningful social impact, and I thank our non-profit partners and everyone who ran, donated, and volunteered. It is especially meaningful to set a new record this year given the Marathon was on One Boston Day for the first time since 2013."
Bay Cove has received Boston Marathon bib numbers through the John Hancock Non-Profit Program since 2009. We’re very proud of this enduring partnership, and we’re proud to be part of this record year of fundraising for worthy causes and non-profits throughout Boston and Massachusetts.
