Tomorrow three members of the BC community - Christine Goldman, a part-time faculty member in the Chemistry Department, and LSOE students Maire “Maggie” Crowley ’17 and Morgan Grunat ’15 - will be running the Boston Marathon for Team MR8, a charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings.

“After running in 2013, I was profoundly affected by the events on an emotional and spiritual level. Every single day when I run, I pray for the victims and their families, and I pray for peace,” Goldman says.
In the days after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, a photo of eight-year-old victim Martin Richard went viral around the Internet. In the photo, Martin held a hand-written sign that simply said, “No More Hurting People. Peace,” and became an international symbol for peace and innocence.
