TEAM NECC

#TeamNECC is our hashtag for runners who participate in running events, such as 5Ks and marathons, to support autism education and research at NECC.  NECC applies to receive charity bibs from two top running events in the Boston area each year.  We then offer the bibs to individuals who are dedicated to running and fundraising on behalf of NECC. 

Boston Marathon

John Hancock, the principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon, donates entries each year to select non-profit organizations through their Marathon Non-Profit Program.  NECC is fortunate to be a recipient and typically receives four bibs.  If you’ve ever wanted to run the Boston Marathon and can commit to training and running 26.2 miles and raising $10,000, apply to be part of #TeamNECC!  *You do not need to qualify for the Boston Marathon to be a charity runner. 

Applications are now closed for 2020.

Falmouth Road Race

The Falmouth Road Race is an annual 7.0-mile road race on Cape Cod from Woods Hole, a village in the town of Falmouth, Massachusetts, to Falmouth Heights.  NECC received 15 bibs in 2019.  Runners who join #TeamNECC commit to raising a minimum of $1,000 for the annual fund. In 2019, the team raised $22,081! 

Applications open in April.
