Instabill Corporation Founder and CEO Jason Field was featured on CBS 4 Boston Wednesday, April 4, regarding his effort in raising funds for Mass Eye and Ear’s ‘Operation Airway,’ centered around his running of the 2018 Boston Marathon Monday, April 16.
With an initial goal of raising $15,000 for Operation Airway, Mr. Field has generated over $21,000 as of April 6, part of Mass Eye and Ear’s collective goal of raising $300,000. He is running the 2018 Marathon in memory of his late brother, Dr. Richard Field, and his fiancé, Dr. Lina Bolanos, who tragically passed away May 5, 2017. Mr. Field is among 20 runners on Team Operation Airway, which funds missions for Mass Eye and Ear specialists to Colombia to perform essential airway surgeries on children and families who cannot otherwise afford them.
Operation Airway was a cause Drs. Field and Bolanos, who was a native of Colombia, passionately supported. Several of their colleagues are also running the Boston Marathon in their memory.
Team Operation Airway Gaining Traction
CBS 4 Boston’s feature on Team Operation Airway is the first of several upcoming media hits. A feature story on Mr. Field’s effort is expected to run in an upcoming edition of The Daily News of Newburyport.
How to support Operation Airway
Donations to Operation Airway, accepted until Tuesday, May 1, can be made at Mr. Field’s personal page via the Mass Eye and Ear website. Monies donated to Operation Airway will not only fund airway surgeries, but also research into airway defects.
