Team Eye and Ear
Now in our ninth year of partnership with John Hancock Financial Services, the lead sponsor of the Boston Marathon®, Team Eye and Ear has raised over $2.1 million to benefit patient care and research at Mass. Eye and Ear. In 2014, the 100 members of Team Eye and Ear aim to raise more than $750,000.
In addition to the generous bib numbers from John Hancock Non-Profit Program, Team Eye and Ear will also be represented by members who ran, but were unable to cross the finish line in 2013 and from a special allotment of numbers from the Boston Athletic Association in gratitude for the role Mass. Eye and Ear played in caring for victims of the 2013 marathon bombings.
Our team is comprised of runners of all abilities ranging from novice to experienced, but they all share a common goal. They lace up their sneakers and log many miles in preparation for Patriot’s Day in Boston. Their personal stories of triumph and adversity propel them to the finish line of the world’s most storied footrace. Their commitment as athletes, fundraisers and ambassadors for Mass. Eye and Ear brings hope and a healthier future to people everywhere who suffer from debilitating conditions affecting sight, hearing, voice, balance, taste and smell, as well as cancers of the eye, head and neck.
