For the 8th consecutive year, the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program has awarded West End House with bibs for the Boston Marathon. The generous support of John Hancock allows us to select 4 runners for our Dawnn for Peace Marathon Team, founded in memory of West End House alumna Dawnn Jaffier. Dawnn was a lifelong member of the West End House whose passion was improving the lives of young people across Boston. Before becoming an innocent victim of violence, Dawnn was a mentor and role model for hundreds of young people at the West End House and beyond. Our Marathon Team plays a vital role in funding programs that support West End House youth. Each year we seek mission-driven individuals to represent our 2023 Boston Marathon team and our mission.
