The Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation are proud to be selected as one of the official 2018 Boston Marathon charity teams.
All of the proceeds raised by the 2018 New England Patriots Foundation team will be earmarked for the Myra Kraft Community MVP Awards program, which celebrates volunteers from across New England and presents grants to nonprofit organizations in honor of their outstanding volunteers.

We are currently accepting applications for runners on a rolling basis. Please note that we receive hundreds of applications each year so submitting an application does not guarantee you a spot on the team.
Applicants that require a bib will be asked to raise a minimum of $7,500. Qualified runners that already have a bib are welcome to join our team and we encourage them to raise a minimum of $2,000.
