* Charities new for the 2013 Boston Marathon are
designated by an asterisk.

1552 participants in the 2013 Boston Marathon will become members of teams
formed by these charitable organizations.  All charities which are
included in the B.A.A.’s Official Charity Program for the Boston Marathon are
reviewed annually by a committee formed by the B.A.A.  Also, the committee
selects several new participating organizations each year through an
application and interview process which occurs during the summer.

In 2012, 1492 participants in the Boston Marathon, representing B.A.A.
charities, raised more than $11.4 million.  The B.A.A.’s principal sponsor
for the Boston Marathon for 28 consecutive years, John Hancock Financial, also
has a non-profit bib program whereby entries into the race are designated for
charitable non-profit organizations.  In total last year, the two programs
raised more than $18.2 million.

The year 2013 will mark the 25th year for the B.A.A.’s Official Charity Program
for the Boston Marathon.  The American Liver Foundation was the first,
formal organization to raise funds at the Boston Marathon in 1989. 
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute was added by the B.A.A. in 1990.
Over the past 27 years, the official B.A.A. Charity program and John
Hancock‰Ûªs own Non-Profit Program have combined to raise more than $150
million for community based organizations.

The B.A.A. assists organizations chosen as part of its Official Charity Program
for the Boston Marathon by providing a limited number of entries, offering
seminars for charity leaders, inviting runners for charity to attend its
complimentary clinic series, sharing information on effective fundraising
techniques, and supporting the organizations with promotion, and public and
media relations.
