John Hancock’s 2012 Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program Raises a Record $6.8 Million

John Hancock’s 2012 Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program raised a record $6.8 million as part of the 116th running of the historic race in April of this year. The record total for 2012 represents a 29 percent increase over 2011’s fundraising results. As part of John Hancock’s sponsorship of the Marathon, each year the company provides non-profits with guaranteed entry numbers (“bibs”) that enable funds to be raised for their organizations. More than 1,000 runners helped raise funds and awareness for 122 organizations this year.
