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.

On Monday, April 21, 2014, the Perkins Marathon Team team laced up their sneakers for the 118th Boston Marathon®. By the time they crossed the finish line, this year's team had raised over $54,000 to support Perkins' life-changing programs that help children and adults who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired build productive, meaningful lives. Congratulations to our runners for an amazing race—and thank you to everyone who supported them, and Perkins, every step of the way.

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 was 26.2 miles. This past April, they ran the Boston Marathon, pounding the pavement from Hopkinton to Boston, to raise funds for Perkins.
