Youth Enrichment Services


Youth Enrichment Services (YES) received four (4) official numbers as part of the 2020 John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program.

If you would like to join the YES 2020 Boston Marathon team and run 26.2 miles for YES youth, please contact Bryan Van Dorpe at [email protected] for an application. The selected runners will have expert support with both fundraising and training. Runners must fundraise $10,000 or more. Applications will be considered up to October 4, 2019, or as long as bib numbers are available. Final decisions on each runner will be made on a rolling basis.

Last year’s 2019 Boston Marathon team raised over $40,000 which gave Boston youth access to essential enrichment and leadership programming at YES.

If you have qualified for the Boston Marathon or have obtained a bib number through another source and would like to run for YES, contact [email protected].

A big thank you to John Hancock for supporting Team YES!
