We Start Running the Boston Marathon in 2017-04-17 11:15:00 GMT-04:00!


The information and instructions on this page apply only to the participants named in the light blue table below.

Pledging to a Harvard College Marathon Challenge participant benefits the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), a student-run, Harvard-based charity that operates over 70 programs serving Boston-area youth and families. Your donation also motivates our runners to raise more funds and to train for the Boston Marathon this April. Our intrepid runners, PBHA, and Harvard College Marathon Challenge all thank you in advance for your thoughtful gift, no matter how large or small!

  • MATCHING GIFTS:  If you work for a company that will match your donation, please ignore the rest of this page and instead follow our special matching gift instructions. It's important that you carefully follow these special matching gift instructions, or else your company will likely be unable to match your nonrefundable donation!

  • CHECK (or cash) DONATIONS:  Donating by check is very easy and is best for our charities, because we incur no transaction costs when you write a check. Instructions for making check donations are on our Pledge Form. A completed Pledge Form, which either the donor or the runner can complete, must accompany every check donation. Please note that all donations are final and nonrefundable. If you need a tax letter, please complete this online tax form but only after you're sure Harvard College Marathon Challenge has received your donation.

  • CREDIT CARD DONATIONS:  Pledging online using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover is simple and secure! Just click on your runner's name below to go directly to his or her personal fundraising page. You'll automatically receive a tax letter after donating online. Please note that writing a check is better for our charities than donating by credit card (due to very high fees for credit card donations), but we'd rather you donate by credit card than not at all! Please also note that all donations are final and nonrefundable.
