The Boston Marathon: More Than A Race

Below is a video I was asked to create for the Boston Athletic Association.  After living in Boston for 4 years, you quickly realize that the Boston Marathon is so much more than a race.  

In 2015, The Boston Marathon brought together 30,000 Runners, 1 Million Spectators and 10,000 volunteers from over 100 Countries around the world. Additionally, over $15 million was raised for charity.  

Below is the video added to the Boston Marathon's Facebook Page

The City of Boston & the Boston Marathon

A few clips of Boston & The Boston Marathon that I have taken over the past 3 years. 

The video shown here is a glimpse into the passion that the city carries and the support the community has for every runner during the Boston Marathon, no matter their shape, ability, size, background or belief.

In 2015, 26,598 runners representing 87 countries across the globe crossed the finish line. The more important statistic is that participants running on behalf of the Boston Athletic Association’s official charities raised $15.63 million dollars.

I'll be raising money for the Museum of Science Traveling Programs. The Traveling Programs serve over 100,000 students annually in New England area and help students experience the excitement and learnings of the Museum of Science's education programs, even if they can't make it to the museum. Funds that our marathon team raises will provide scholarships to schools and libraries that do not have the means to pay for field trips to the museum. These programs help engage and inspire students to learn more and stay in school.

The people and the city of Boston have been such an inspiration the past year. Here are a few clips of the 2014 Boston Marathon and the days leading up to the marathon. All footage was shot with a Cannon t4i. Congrats to all of the finishers!
