This year, TUGG has been selected by the John Hancock® Non Profit Program as one of the lucky organizations to receive charity bibs for the 119th Boston Marathon. We're pleased to announce that we are now recruiting both qualified/registered runners and charity runners for team TUGG! 

Are you an enthusiastic runner with a passion for helping Boston's youth? Are you ready to take on this fantastic fundraising challenge? TUGG believes every young person, no matter where they live, deserves to succeed. So, we harness the power of Boston's tech ecosystem to support programs that give local inner city youth a chance to thrive through education, entrepreneurship, and life experiences. If you are one of the special folks selected to join our team, you'll be running to raise awareness and much needed funds to keep our community impact going strong.
