Team Eye and Ear
The Boston Athletic Association has announced that the 124th Boston Marathon will be held as a virtual event, following Boston Mayor Martin Walsh’s cancellation of the marathon as a mass participation road running event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The virtual Boston Marathon will be complemented by a series of virtual events throughout the second week of September.
The marathon team has put in a tremendous amount of time and effort to train and fundraise on behalf of Team Eye and Ear. Their fundraising impact is critical to helping our mission – to find cures for blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck.
We are all so grateful for their unwavering commitment and patience during this unprecedented time.
Thanks to John Hancock Financial Services, the lead sponsor of the Boston Marathon, Team Eye and Ear has raised more than $6 million since 2006 for research and patient care at Mass. Eye and Ear.
Thank you to our Team Eye and Ear Platinum Sponsor, Physicians Realty Trust.
