Partnership Expectations
It’s an honor to be included in the John Hancock Non Profit Program. As such, it’s important that everyone respect the process, expectations and terms of engagement. The expectation is everyone will do their part to ensure success for all parties.

Brass Tacks
The bar has been set high with a fundraising commitment of $7,500 per runner. We ask you to give your fundraising plan careful consideration in order to make the most of your experience. Our staff will support your fundraising, but the commitment responsibility lies with each runner.

The Application
Please complete the online application in full. Or you can download the PDF application and return via e-mail to:, by Tuesday, October 31, 2017. A valid credit card number (through September 2018) must be submitted with the application in order to be considered. You may be contacted to discuss your application. All information shared on this application or in any interview will be handled confidentially.

Fundraising Commitment & Schedule
If you are selected as a member of the 2018 Title IX Girls Marathon Team, you are committing to raise at least $7,500. Fundraising can be done online with CrowdRise, and/or offline with checks and cash.

  • On the day you are accepted a $50 application fee will be charged to your credit card and will go toward your fundraising commitment.
  • 25% of the minimum fundraising commitment raised by Friday, December 8, 2017
  • 50% of the minimum fundraising commitment raised by Friday, March 9, 2018
  • 100% of the minimum fundraising commitment due by Monday, April 9, 2018

Any balance due in order to reach your fundraising commitment will be billed to your credit card. Title IX Girls Running Club will support your fundraising with weekly check ins, and offer you a training plan and program to get you to the start.

I understand that I may cancel my participation with Title IX Girls Running Club for the 2018 Boston Marathon, waiving my responsibility for the fundraising minimum stated above, any time on or before December 1, 2017, by contacting Stacy at Title IX Girls Running Club in writing. I understand that my $50 deposit and any donations received by Title IX Girls Running Club will not be refunded.

I understand that after December 1, 2017, I am solely responsible for raising or personally giving the entire fundraising minimum, even if for any reason, including injury, I am unable to run in the 2018 Boston Marathon.

Any legal expenses incurred in the collection of funds will be the sole responsibility of the runner.

I agree that I will not begin the race prior to the official start time; I will not compete in a manner that, in the judgment of the race officials, interferes with race operations or other participants; I will not reproduce or transfer my official bib number.

Register & Train

I agree to pay a $355 race application fee to the Boston Athletic Association. I understand that this does not count toward my fundraising minimum for Title IX Girls Running Club. Title IX Girls Running Club will inform me of the details of B.A.A. registration. This fee will be collected separately at a later date. I will not contact the B.A.A. directly to secure my number.

The entry must be used by the person who utilizes the number and may not be transferred, sold or auctioned to another person. The registration must be submitted to B.A.A. no later than January 30, 2018.

Still game? Good. Complete and submit the application. Good Luck!
