I first met Andy Martin, Jr., of New Hampshire, when I began working at the credit union 14 years ago. Andy, just 5-years-old, was the Hanscom FCU Children’s Hospital Boston patient partner. He helped our staff, volunteers and members connect with the hospital’s work. We responded by raising funds every year through the Boston Marathon and our runner, Hanscom FCU board member Ray Phillips.

HFCU Sales Manager Takes on His First Boston Marathon

Posted by Hanscom Federal Credit Union on Apr 17, 2015 2:22:00 PM

What motivates someone to take on the Boston Marathon? All different things, I guess, but to my mind, you’d have to be really motivated to run 26.2 miles in the same day.

Team Hanscom Runs the Marathon for Children’s Hospital

When I think about teams, Ray and Andy come to mind.  They have been a part of the Boston Marathon for 15 years, fundraising for Boston Children’s Hospital. For the first thirteen years, Ray ran, and Andy waited impatiently at the finish line to complete the final 600 yards with him. They are quite a pair.
