"I’m a teacher, and I run."
Teachers exemplify what determination looks like. The dedication and hard work put in everyday as teachers is mirrored in the dedication and hard work runners put in everyday when training for a marathon. Each day teachers help kids find their finish line. And Hyland's wants to help these everyday superstars, in turn, find theirs.
If these words ring true to you, if you are ready to commit to the challenge of Boston, then Hyland's invites you to apply to join our team and "Find Yourself, Find Your Finish Line" at the 2018 Boston Marathon®.
The application period has ended.
