When Jennifer decided to run the Boston Marathon, she knew it had to be for Perkins. For Jennifer, the Marathon is an opportunity to share her passion for Perkins' mission and give back to the dedicated staff members she works with every day.

Ask Sophia why she joined Team Perkins, and she'll tell you it's for the kids. As a behavior analyst in our Lower School Program, she's constantly amazed by her students. She hopes to amaze them by running her first Boston Marathon for Perkins.

As a speech-language pathologist in our Deafblind Program, Lindy counts herself "lucky enough to see what a wonderful and special place Perkins is first-hand." A seasoned Marathon runner, Lindy says this Boston Marathon will be her most special one because she's running for a cause close to her heart.
