Boston Marathon WUNners Help support our WUNners GET INVOLVED

Boston Marathon 2023 WUNners

Each year WUN participates in the highly competitive Boston Marathon and we need your help to get our team there to raise awareness. The funds raised by Wake Up Narcolepsy through the John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program will be donated directly to Narcolepsy researchers working to gain a deeper understanding of this serious medical disorder in order to improve the lives of those suffering from Narcolepsy. We are deeply grateful to our dedicated team members who work tirelessly to both train for this prestigious athletic event, and reach out to friends, family and colleagues for support.
