Cops for Kids with Cancer and the Marathon

The organizer of the world-famous Boston Marathon, the Boston Athletic Association (BAA), gives back to local communities through their Official Charity Program.

This program provides invitational entries to the Boston Marathon to select non-profit charitable organizations, such as ours. We use these entries to recruit individual runners who pledge to raise funds for our cause.

The Cops for Kids With Cancer charitable organization is extremely proud to be a member of the Official Charity Program.
