Team End ALZ is comprised of charity runners, time-qualified runners and runners who received an invitational entry on their own. Funds raised by Team End ALZ runners directly supports the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association; to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research and to provide care and support for all affected.

The Team End ALZ program began in 2001 when a few dedicated athletes participated in the Boston Marathon on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association. The program has grown over the past 17 years, raising over $7.5M since inception. The 2019 Boston Marathon Team raised over $407,000.

The Alzheimer’s Association is proud to be an official Partner of John Hancock in the Marathon Non-Profit Program. The Non-Profit Program provides over 1000 Boston Marathon® entries to select non-profit organizations throughout the community, which provides organizations with significant fundraising opportunity. Last year, John Hancock Non-Profit Runners raised over $14M for their causes.
