MIDDLETON — Town Moderator Jack Savage is headed back to the Boston Marathon this year as a member of Team Eye and Ear, raising money to fight ocular melanoma. This year he is running in support of Rochester’s Scott Gaulin, a father of three who has been fighting the cancer for more than 10 years.

“Two years ago I ran Boston in memory of my late brother-in-law, Michael Kimball,” Savage said. “Mike, himself a father of five, lost his battle. Ocular Melanoma — essentially skin cancer of the eye — is rare enough that not nearly enough research is being conducted to find ways to overcome it. In 2012 we raised over $9,000 to fund such research through Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary, where Mike was treated.”
