boston_marathon Boston Marathon®
2007, 2008, 2009

For the past three years, Habitat Greater Boston has been one of 26 charities selected by the Boston Athletic Association to field a team of runners in the Boston Marathon. Each year the 15 "Habitat Hotfooters" ran the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Copley Square and raised thousands to help us build homes. In 2009 alone our marathoners were able to raise $75,000 for Habitat Greater Boston. Unfortunately, 2009 was our last year as an official charity of the Marathon, but we look forward to watching you cross the finish in 2010!
