Cops For Kids With Cancer is a charity that gives  money directly  to families who are dealing with the challenge of having a child sick with cancer.  The volunteer charity board  consists primarily of Police Officers and/or retired Police Officers who want each family to feel the positive reinforcement that someone else cares.  These families are each awarded $5000 to help relieve the stress of financial burdens and hopefully put a small smile on their face.  If you can imagine, you can understand. Cops For Kids With Cancer does not have salaries or expense accounts, all monies are returned to the families in need.

1920 - Ashland Start

The Boston Marathon began in Ashland, Massachusetts from 1897 through 1923 then moved to Hopkinton for the 1924 race. The course was lengthened to 26 miles, 385 yards to conform to the Olympic standard, and the starting line was moved west from Ashland to Hopkinton. Since then, the race has started in Hopkinton every year.
