2018 Boston Marathon Runner Application

Run your heart out to support heart families.

The Ethan M. Lindberg Foundation proudly supports children and families facing congenital heart disease, the #1 birth defect. We are committed to using this platform to partner with families to tell their inspiring stories and to honor their children. We are proud to name the Ethan M. Lindberg Foundation Marathon Team TEAM FRANNIE, in honor and memory of Frannie O'Brien. Frannie lost her battle to HLHS shortly after birth and her family has found comfort and purpose through running in her memory. 

TEAM FRANNIE for the Ethan Lindberg Foundation is an official charity partner through John Hancock’s Marathon Non-Profit Program for the 2018 Boston Marathon.  We are looking for runners that want to be a part of the inaugural team running to directly benefit the Ethan Lindberg Foundation.  We have four bibs for the 2018 Boston Marathon. Runners are not required to have a qualifying time, but must be able to complete the marathon in 6.5 hours. There is a minimum fundraising requirement of $8,000 per applicant*.  TEAM FRANNIE will support each runner with a fundraising page and publicity through our social media channels.  

*Each runner is responsible to pay for their own entry into the marathon ($360) which is not covered by the fundraising requirement.
