2017 Boston Marathon® Team
The Boston Athletic Association® has awarded 15 entries to the Museum of Science for the 121st Boston Marathon®, one of the most prestigious races in the world. On April 17, 2017, each runner representing the Museum will raise a minimum of $6,000 in support of the Museum's Traveling Programs, which brings science programs to over 100,000 students annually in schools, community centers, and libraries across the Northeast.
For 22 years, Traveling Programs has helped the Museum forge strong connections with community organizations and leaders in an effort to broaden the availability of the Museum's resources. These programs provide a special opportunity for schools that simply do not have the financial resources for a field trip to the Museum. The funds raised by the marathon runners will support program expansion, scholarships, and more.
