Team MTF-Running for Research

Boston Marathon and the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program


The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and running it is a major “bucket list” item for serious distance runners throughout the world. The John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program provides a way for runners who might not otherwise qualify to run this marathon to participate. John Hancock has been the principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon for over 30 years. Since 2012 the Massage Therapy Foundation has been grateful for the opportunity to participate in their charity program to bring more awareness to the benefits of massage. Fundraising for the Massage Therapy Foundation advances the knowledge and practice of massage therapy by supporting scientific research, education and community service.

We are excited to announce that we have been granted four invitational entries (bibs) for the 2017 Boston Marathon John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program. This is the fifth consecutive year that we have participated in this exciting program. Team MTF – Running for Research will be running in the 121st Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017.
