Officially qualified participants who are already entered in the 2018 Boston Marathon that wish to raise funds for the Brigham and Women's Hospital may still do so using the contact information above.
Join the 2018 BWH Stepping Strong Marathon Team to become part of a passionate movement dedicated to turning tragedy into hope for civilian and military heroes worldwide who have suffered devastating traumatic injuries.

“During my deployment to Iraq, I saw firsthand the impact of trauma, both physically and mentally. I run with BWH because Stepping Strong is a great platform to help survivors of traumatic injury.” -Tom Steinbrunner

"Running with the Stepping Strong Marathon Team in 2017 was the best day of my life! The spirit of the team was powerful and positive, and that, along with the mantra Stepping Strong is what energized me throughout the entire run. I highly recommend running with this wonderful team." - Rachel Bliss
