Support the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund – Run the Boston Marathon!

   UMass Medical School has once again been selected to participate in the Boston Marathon. John Hancock, principal sponsor of the event, accepted the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund into its non-profit marathon program for the sixth year, allowing UMMS to give five official race numbers to marathoners who commit to raising at least $7,500 each for the fund.

Because of their dedication and commitment, our teams have raised more than $270,000 for the groundbreaking ALS research being conducted at UMMS. We are thrilled to have another opportunity to raise awareness—and vital funding—through this nationally recognized event.

Highly motivated runners/fundraisers interested in participating in the 121st Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017, on behalf of the Cellucci Fund are encouraged to apply.

Please complete an application and submit to:
