BENEFITING: Boston Health Care For The Homeless Program Inc
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
For more than 32 years, Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP) has been committed to providing and assuring access to the highest quality health care for Boston’s homeless men, women, and children. We care for more than 11,000 homeless patients each year at more than 50 locations throughout greater Boston—patients who endure daily threats to their lives and health yet struggle to access the care they need.
On April 17th, our runners will proudly embark on the historic Boston Marathon route to run on behalf of the thousands of homeless individuals and families cared for by Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program.
Named as one of the John Hancock Boston Marathon charities, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to field a Team BHCHP for the sixth year. This is a rare and important opportunity for us to shine a light upon the tremendous challenges that our patients face each day, while raising much-needed funds to support the work of our dedicated health care teams. On behalf of our patients and staff, we ask that you please consider supporting Team BHCHP. Support in any amount would be very much appreciated and would help propel our runners toward their goals!
