April 20th, 2015 – Run the 2015 Boston Marathon for buildOn!

Runners/fundraisers, here’s your chance to make a difference while participating in the oldest marathon race in the United States! Join buildOn’s Boston Marathon team and make a difference in the lives of youth home and abroad. The Boston Chapter of buildOn is looking for 5 individuals to join our Boston Marathon Team.

With the opportunity to run in the world’s most premier race comes the opportunity expand buildOn’s impact on a local and global level. We are making significant local impact by working with inner-city high school students in the Boston area as they participate in life changing experiences by engaging in critical local community service. In addition, buildOn will work with Boston based students on a global level by traveling with students abroad to assist with the construction of a buildOn schools in developing countries. Our team will help to unlock the potential of under-resourced communities locally and around the globe.

My Motivation


100% of funds raised through the Boston Marathon support buildOn programming in Boston. Our team marathon fundraising goal is $75,000. Here are examples of ways your fundraising efforts will support buildOn students:

  • $15,000 will support a 6-week summer leadership program for 15 Boston Public School students

  • $10,000 will sponsor Trek for Knowledge for 4 Boston Public School students

  • $8,000 will provide service programming for 8 students for a full school year

With this in mind, we are asking each of our runners to commit to raising a minimum of $8,000.  We encourage team members to set an ambitious yet attainable fundraising goal.  We are here to help and support you every step of the way.  We promise to put the fun in fundraising – including dollar for dollar challenge matches and other exciting contests throughout the marathon training season.  Aim high and you will be amazed at what you can achieve! Together, we can change the world!


Here is a quick and easy way to double your impact! Ask your employer if they will support your efforts!
