For the last 20 years, Team With A Vision has raced the Boston Marathon in support of The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. For two decades, blind and sighted runners have toed the line in Hopkinton and for 26.2 miles they have persevered through the heat, the rain, the wind, the hills and this year - the bombs.
We can’t let the actions of two overshadow the actions of many. In 2013 over twenty-six thousand runners entered the Boston Marathon. Whether they were racing for world records, personal bests, or charities, twenty-six thousand athletes crossed the starting line in Hopkinton, Twenty-six thousand athletes, all embodying the spirit of the marathon showcased all that was and is great in the world on Marathon Monday, 2013.
This year, we raised $78,458 to support the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired’s statewide network of vision rehabilitation services. These funds makes it possible for us to deliver services to over 1,100 Massachusetts blind and visually impaired residents each year.
None of us will ever forget where we were or what happened at 2:50 PM on Monday, April 15, 2013. Whether you were cleaning up at your hotel, walking through the finisher chutes, or still out on the course, you were at the Boston Marathon. Why?
