2014 Marathon Team

Running to help give children and adults who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired a fighting chance to reach their full potential.

Perkins is pleased to be part of the John Hancock Non-Profit Program for the 2014 Boston Marathon®. The 118th B.A.A. Boston Marathon will be held on Patriots' Day, Monday, April 21, 2014.

Last year's team achieved great success raising money in support of Perkins' mission to provide education and services that that build productive, meaningful lives for children and adults around the world who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired including those with additional disabilities.

Going the extra mile…and more

How far would you go to make a difference? For Chris, Mark, Lauren, Matt, Jenn, Marissa, Anne, Elton and Katie it's 26.2 miles. This April, they'll run the Boston Marathon®, pounding the pavement from Hopkinton to Boston to raise funds for Perkins.

Watch our video, read their personal stories and see how your support can help them every step of the way.
