Hendrik Walther, a clinical scientist in our Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE), wasn’t about to let COVID-19 get in the way of running the 2020 Boston Marathon last month. Instead, he created his own 46 km route around KW, visiting many CORE colleagues (from a distance) along the way. Read more about his race in Waterloo's Daily Bulletin.

Congratulations, Hendrik, and we hope to cheer you on in the next Boston Marathon!
