Zoo New England's Boston Marathon Team

Thanks to a partnership with John Hancock’s Non-Profit Program, Zoo New England is proud to have an incredible team running the 121st Boston Marathon. This dedicated team is training hard as they get ready to run 26.2 miles in support of Zoo New England.

Each team member has committed to raise important funds for Zoo New England and ensure that our unique experiences connect people and nature, provide youth focused education programs, and continue conservation projects locally and around the world for many years to come.

All proceeds support the team’s fundraising efforts on behalf of Zoo New England.


Support team member, Jaimie Shaughnessy!

ShaughnessyThis April marks Jamie Shaughnessy's sixth marathon and fifth consecutive Boston Marathon. A lifelong visitor of Franklin Park Zoo, Shaughnessy cherishes the learning experiences the Zoo has offered since she was a child.

“I have always loved learning about and being around animals, so growing up near the Franklin Park Zoo was such a treat for me!” says Shaughnessy. “This year is especially exciting because I get to incorporate two of my favorite things, the Boston Marathon and my love for animals. It’s important to support organizations like Zoo New England, which are committed to conservation and preserving species.”

Shaughnessy has committed to raising $10,000 to support Zoo New England through her Boston Marathon run. Show your support!

Support Jamie!
