Matt Brotherton's Fundraising Page


With our two kids in the house and my upcoming 30th birthday, I needed a physical challenge to prove I am still the guy i think i am. One of the hardest challenges I could think of was running a marathon. The training has been time consuming and difficult at times but it will be worth it once I reach the finish line.

Here is where I need some help. Typically, you need to qualify for the event by running a previous marathon in a certain time. However, since i am employee with John Hancock i have the opportunity to fund raise instead of posting a qualifying time.

Please support me by giving to the charity, it's a good cause and this program allows an average runner like me to enter into a world famous event.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Thank you so much for your support. Matt
