Why the Boston Marathon?

Healthcare can feel like a marathon. Too daunting. Too many tedious tasks on the road to delivering patient care. We celebrate the healthcare professionals who run the Boston Marathon and are leading the pursuit of a healthier, more connected future for healthcare.

Olive's 2022 impact in Boston

Here are some highlights from Olive’s activity throughout the 126th Boston Marathon.

$20,566 donated

Olive's 2022 Marathons that Matter challenge generated a $20,566 donation from us to the Boston Children's Hospital Simulation Lab.

1 Team. 20 conquerors.

Team Olive featured nine Olivians and 11 runners from other healthcare organizations. Some ran their first marathon, but all were equally inspiring.

700+ miles

Between Fan Fest treadmill miles and miles run by Team Olive throughout the weekend, we ran over 700 miles.

Every step inspires. Every stride moves us all forward.

We are so proud to have had runners from Olive and other healthcare organizations representing Team Olive in the 126th Boston Marathon. Thank you all for your sacrifice, steps taken and devotion to the marathons that matter.
