04 Jun 2020 Boston Marathon Cancelled
Wake Up Narcolepsy regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Boston Marathon. For our organization, runners, donors and community, this is difficult news. As you know, COVID-19 has placed unprecedented pressure on individuals, organizations and cities across the world. We mourn the loss of lives, the ongoing threat to society and the impact this disease is having on each of us.
With regret, our 2020 #TEAMWUN has been called upon to realize a digital marathon alternative in September of this year. Our sole aim in securing bibs for the prestigious Boston Marathon is to raise funds for narcolepsy research. By way of thanks, we congratulate our #2020WUNNERS @Lindsay Jesteadt @Thaddeus Bath @Colleen Marsallo @Gretchen Micklitsch who have endeavored not only to train to race-level fitness but also secure funds which will directly improve the lives of people with narcolepsy. We applaud you four!
