Running the Boston Marathon® for Hope and a Healthier Future

Team Eye and Ear, the Mass. Eye and Ear marathon team runs the Boston Marathon annually to bring hope and a healthier future to people everywhere who suffer from blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck.

In our 12 years of partnership with John Hancock Financial Services, the lead sponsor of the Boston Marathon, Team Eye and Ear has raised more than $5 million for research and patient care at Mass. Eye and Ear.

On Marathon Monday, the members of Team Eye and Ear lace up their sneakers with hope, courage and determination and will set-off on the run of a lifetime. Team Eye and Ear journey 26.2 miles from the picturesque starting line in Hopkinton to Boston and cross the storied finish in Copley Square.
