Team With A Vision
Boston Marathon Postponed Until September 14, 2020
The B.A.A. just announced that the Boston Marathon is being postponed until September 14 due to concerns about the Coronavirus. Here is a link to the B.A.A page for information about the announcement.
We’re fully supportive of this decision as the health and welfare of the runners and the communities at large is what’s most important at this time.
The B.A.A. is actively preparing details surrounding the rescheduled Boston Marathon and B.A.A. 5K and will be updating us in the coming days to provide updates and further guidance as it relates to the Official Charity Program. As soon as we hear anything, we will pass on the details to the team.
We’re sure you have many questions about how this will impact you. This is a very fluid situation, but we will do the best we can over the coming days to provide you with the information you need as we get it. We have set up a conference call for next Tuesday to discuss the implications of the new date and to answer any questions you may have. We will email Team With A Vision members with the call details. If you cannot make the call, we will provide a recording of it as well as a written summary of the meeting.
Team With A Vision is proud to be a part of the Boston Athletic Association’s charity program allowing us to field a team for the Boston Marathon® 2020. Our international team raises awareness that with the right support anything is possible while raising critical funds for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (MABVI). Because of the generosity of the B.A.A. MABVI is able to sustain the Healthy Living Initiative–a unique program of professional, peer and volunteer support to over 1,400 individuals
All funds raised support MABVI’s Healthy Living Initiative which focuses on the physical, emotional, and mental health needs of individuals living with vision loss and blindness. This includes our statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, 34 low vision support groups, and adjustment to vision loss counseling, Assistive Technology Training Centers, and 400 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals for guiding or other healthy living activities.
We need volunteers on Marathon Weekend!
We are looking for volunteers to help support Team With A Vision over the Boston Marathon Weekend. We have several opportunities at all our marathon weekend events to come out to support our team of blind and visually impaired runners, their guides and our charity runners.
