2022 Boston Marathon®
Boston’s Race Returns to Patriot's Day for the First Time in Three Years!
Join Reach Athletes as they return to the streets of Boston for the second time in six months as this historic race takes place on its traditional date in April for the first time since 2019. Conquer Heartbreak Hill, take the famous Right on Hereford and Left on Boylston, and cover this storied 26.2 from Hopkinton to Boston, all while supporting families facing the financial burdens of cancer.
Push the limits. Persist through the pain. Power forward. It’s what Reach Athletes do. It’s also what our cancer heroes and their families must do as they face months of uncertainty and devastating financial barriers. Their courage and strength inspire Reach Athletes to train, overcome obstacles, and keep moving forward. Think you have what it takes?

Family Reach is proud to be an official Partner of John Hancock in the Marathon Non-Profit Program
Family Reach is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to removing the financial barriers standing between a cancer patient and their treatment. Loss of income, out-of-pocket expenses, and socioeconomic factors create disparities in the financial burdens families face. Family Reach delivers financial education, financial coaching, resource navigation, and emergency relief funds to patients and caregivers facing a cancer diagnosis so no family has to choose between their health and their home.
