The National Hellenic Society (NHS) and National Hellenic Museum (NHM) programmatic collaboration on the traveling exhibit, “The Spirit of the Marathon” was showcased at the prestigious Museum of Science in Boston in celebration of the 119th running of the Boston Marathon. The Exhibit traces the history and impact of Marathon from its ancient roots, when the Greek herald, Pheiddippides, after a grueling 26.2 mile run, proclaimed victory over the Persians: defeat would have been an end to Athenian democracy and would have changed history.
NHS Boston Co-Chairs are working with the Alpha Omega Council to organize joint programs. Plans also are underway to bring the National Hellenic Museum’s “Spirit of the Marathon” exhibit to Boston.
