Imagine what it's like to spend many months training in the cold New England winter — running before sunrise or after dark, spending time away from your family — all in order to raise money so that everyone in Greater Boston will always have a place to call home.  Each runner has their own personal reason for accepting such an enormous challenge.

Team Metro Housing has had runners compete and raise funds through the Boston Marathon since 2006 thanks to the John Hancock Nonprofit Program.  Runners have raised over $500,000 to prevent families and individuals throughout Greater Boston from becoming homeless and transition from homelessness to stability.
