Ruth Ladd’s church in Lexington, Massachusetts, has a special relationship with Russell School in Dorchester, a Boston public elementary school. When the school’s library was in dire need of reading material, parishioners donated or purchased books for the children. Volunteers work with the kids in the classroom and help out during Field Days. Unfortunately many students experience homelessness, so when a child’s family finds housing, it’s not only a positive turning point in their lives, but a celebratory event at the school and for people like Ruth.
The Boston Marathon, in its 122-year history, has never been cancelled because of weather. Nothing has stopped its runners: snow, sleet, heat, humidity…the race always goes on.
And 2018 was no different with its driving rain, gusty winds, and lower-than-normal April temperatures.
Ray Phillips thought running the Boston Marathon in 2000 would be a one-time thing. He was over 50 and thrilled to get a coveted bib number as a charity runner for Team Hanscom FCU, which supports Credit Unions Kids at Heart. Yet while he looked forward to the challenge, he didn’t have a compelling reason to put himself through more training seasons and possible injury in the future.
