The Boston Marathon

Founded in 1996, CU Kids at Heart raises funds for research on pediatric neurological disorders, and in the last several years, has done so by sponsoring a team that receives charity bibs to run the Boston Marathon on behalf of Boston Children’s Hospital. Each year, runners are paired with Boston Children’s Hospital Patient Partners, many of whom are challenged to overcome debilitating diseases.

The 2023 team consists of eight dedicated runners, including employees of the team’s supporting credit unions and research investigators whose groundbreaking research is funded, in part, by CU Kids at Heart. Learn more about our Runners and Patient Partners here.

Our Platinum Sponsors, Corporate Sponsors, and Participating Credit Unions are listed on the Supporters page.
