The Special Olympics Massachusetts Boston Marathon team is presented by John Hancock. Each runner will be wearing a bib made possible through the John Hancock non-profit program. In 2017 John Hancock signed on as a Champion for 50 – celebrating 50 years of the Special Olympics movement – awarding 25 bibs to Special Olympics Massachusetts fundraisers. They have partnered with Greg Schwartz, a Special Olympics Athlete and 2015 & 2017 Marathoner who competes and raises money for the organization.
