Joel Avery, general manager of Acura of Peabody, had this to say about the sponsorship:

“We have the opportunity to make an impact in our community, not just sell cars. It is a pleasure to give Cheryl the opportunity to get her toes on the starting line in Hopkinton. Everyone knows about the Boston Marathon, whether they run or not. There is a real sense of pride and ownership that folks feel about the 26.2 miles.”

Cheryl George, who has previously volunteered at the Mile 6 Hydration Station in Framington during the 2014 and 2015 races, had this to say about that experiences:

“Knowing that the Boston Marathon is the sacred mecca for all runners, there is magic that surrounds it. It’s like the Olympics, and yet it takes place within 30 miles of my town! It was such a rush to see elites like Shalane Flanagan, Meb Keflezhighi, Ryan Hall, Sheri Piers, and so many other runners battling within feet of me! I loved high-fiving all the runners who stopped for water and I vowed that I would run it someday.”

Our team here at Acura of Peabody has fully embraced the NEADA “We are Boston” campaign, and we can’t wait to support each and every one of the runners of the marathon and to see the 2017 Acura NSX and the painted 2017 Acura MDX and our entire new Acura lineup be some of the official pace cars leading the Boston Marathon!
