2020 Boston Marathon®

If you are interested in a charity bib for the 2020 Boston Marathon® and would like to run and fundraise on behalf on Fenway Health, complete the Fenway Health Runner Application, available on this page by downloading the PDF, or by entering your contact information below and we will email it to you.

Applications are accepted and reviewed on a first come first serve basis. We hope to select our slate of runners this fall, but openings in the slate sometimes happen due to personal reasons on the part of a runner. Because of this, if you are late to this page, please submit your application anyway to be added to a waiting list for 2020 or 2021.

The 2020 Boston Marathon® is scheduled for April 20, 2020!  It’s not too early to express your interest in a charity bib – running on behalf of Fenway Health, one of Boston’s premier community health centers and the only charity with an LGBTQ+ mission!

2019 Boston Marathon®

We are so proud of our 2019 Boston Marathon® team – Corbin Petro, Samantha Bellissimo and Edward Boudrot!

They trained hard and fund-raised hard, raising more than $30,000 for Fenway Health. While Sam had to drop out at the last minute due to a training injury, we hope to see her at the 2020 Boston Marathon®. Ed’s time was 04:48:22 and Corbin’s 04:16:20 – running 26.2 miles through both rain and sunshine! Congratulations team and thank you!!!

Thank you also to John Hancock and the Boston Athletic Association for all they do to offer charity fundraising opportunities as part of the Boston Marathon®. Their commitment to community raises millions of dollars annually for critical nonprofit initiatives all over the region.

All funds raised go to Fenway Health, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and a Boston-based, nationally recognized community health center renowned for its excellence in healthcare for Boston residents, with a focus on culturally competent, accessible healthcare, research and public health programs for the LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS communities throughout the region. Your donation shows our dedicated runners some love, but also ensures the most vulnerable in our community access to healthcare, no matter their ability to pay.
