2015 Boston Marathon

A member of Team Perkins at the 2014 Boston Marathon.

Going the extra mile…and more

A 26.2-mile race doesn't begin with a single step. It begins with a goal. For members of the 2015 Perkins Marathon Team, the goal is to raise funds to help children and adults who are blind gain the skills and independence needed to achieve their greatest potential.
