The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund proudly announced that the Massachusetts-based organization will partner with the John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program once again to receive four (4) bibs for the 119th running of the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2015.
Last year, two Team Ouimet runners raised nearly $21,000 to help Ouimet Scholars afford a college education. The Fund is looking for dedicated individuals to run the world’s most prestigious marathon while raising money for need-based Ouimet Scholarships!
