Boston Marathon


This year our buildOn Boston Chapter is extremely fortunate and excited to participate in the John Hancock non-profit program for the Boston Marathon.  Bibs are going fast and to ensure your spot we´ve created a simple application process. We have a feeling that the 2014 race will be an amazing year to run the Boston Marathon! We welcome all potential runners to fill out an application. The race is scheduled for Monday April 21, 2014.

We only have 10 spaces on our team. All runners for “Team buildOn” must fundraise a minimum of $6,500 for buildOn’s Boston Chapter. This fundraising will support the Boston Chapter’s goal supporting the buildOn program in 3 Boston Public Schools and supporting Boston public students in their work of building schools in a developing country. Each year local students volunteer around Boston and some students have the opportunity to participate in the life changing experience of traveling abroad, on buildOn’s Trek for Knowledge, to assist with the construction of buildOn’s sponsored schools.  Last year, our runners raised over $78,000!

Potential runners who are interested in running in the race on the buildOn team should contact Kristina Skrehot at and complete the application. Applications are due to our Chapter by November 15th, 2013 but please submit as early as you wish. Individuals who already have a bib for the Boston Marathon, are also welcome to join our team as a fundraiser (no minimum).
