Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester (BGCD) is proud to be part of the Official B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program, with 15 entries for the 2021 Boston Marathon. These entries give runners who were ineligible or unable to obtain a qualifying timed entry for the Boston Marathon through B.A.A. an opportunity to participate.
