Thompson Island Outward Bound, Official B.A.A. Charity Partner for the 2020 Boston Marathon!
As you have likely heard, the Boston Marathon has been postponed for the first time in its 124-year history. The decision was made by the City of Boston in the best interest of health and safety for all. In light of this, we want to recognize the incredible team of 16 runners who make up the Thompson Island Outward Bound marathon team. This dedicated group of supporters has been training hard and fundraising even harder for months, has shown incredible passion and commitment, and has demonstrated the highest Outward Bound value of all, compassion. We see your efforts and we recognize how disappointing this postponement must feel. But you are Outward Bounders now, and we embrace challenge, and emerge through struggle all the better for it.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and we will continue to support your journey toward the Boston Marathon, even if it may take a little longer than we all expected.
The 2020 Thompson Island Outward Bound Boston Marathon Team is full!
