The New England Aquarium is an official charity of the Boston Marathon®. Our team is raising money in support of the Aquarium’s traveling outreach programs, which bring the ocean to 45,000 children in diverse communities and schools throughout the Boston area each year. Outreach programs visit schools
, afterschool programs and community centers
, providing what is often the first opportunity for children to experience and learn about marine animals. Participants discover how these animals relate to their own lives and the simple things they can do to protect the oceans.
About the Boston Marathon®
One of the world's most prestigious foot races, the Boston Marathon threads its way through Massachusetts from Hopkinton toward Copley Square in Boston. Committing to run for the New England Aquarium is not only a personal challenge to complete the 26.2-mile course, it is a committment to educate the next generation of ocean stewards.
