BOSTON, Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Twine by John Hancock is partnering with USA TODAY SPORTS Active Alliance to become the Official Financial Services Partner of the California International Marathon, in a reflection of John Hancock’s focus on healthy living and financial health. In addition, through this partnership, John Hancock, the longtime principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon, is offering the Boston Bound Sweepstakes.
“We’re excited to partner our new app, Twine, with USA TODAY SPORTS Active Alliance because we feel that physical health is just as important as financial health, and both are easier when taking the team approach,” said Steven Dorval, Head of Digital Advice and Innovation, John Hancock.
“Just as having a running partner, coach, or nutritionist can be instrumental in reaching the finish line, having a partner with shared investment and savings goals can be essential to ensuring financial security. Enter Twine, unique to the market, that helps couples and families set financial goals and work together to achieve them,” he added.
Bruce Revman, Commissioner of the USA TODAY SPORTS Active Alliance, agrees with this team approach.
“We are so pleased that John Hancock has selected the USA TODAY SPORTS Active Alliance and its network of Boston Marathon qualifiers to promote Twine, the first savings and investing app for two,” said Revman. “Runners benefit in a number of ways from training with a partner – from increased motivation to ongoing support and encouragement to reach the finish, and now Twine brings a similar approach to investing.”
John Hancock’s Boston Bound Sweepstakes provides the chance to win an exclusive VIP trip for two to the 2018 Boston Marathon, including flight and two nights lodging, two finish line seats, two Marathon jackets and the opportunity to meet and go on a fun run with Boston Marathon champions Bill Rodgers and Meb Keflezighi. The winner could optionally choose free entry and travel to any other race in the USA TODAY SPORTS Active Alliance network. The sweepstakes is open until December 31, 2017.
