the one to the other-

who have learnt how to turn our 

common suffering

Who are we?

We are a group of 4th grade students who are passionate about achieving our goal of finishing the miles that were unable to be finished during the 2013 Boston Marathon due to the horrendous attacks that occurred on April 15th, 2013. 

What are we doing?

We are encouraging people to walk or run a little bit each day not only for their own personal health, but to support those who were unable to finish the Boston Marathon on April 15th, 2013. Our goal is to collect 1.4 miles for each of the 4.496 almost finishers (anyone who did not finish but made it to the 24.8 mile marker before the race was stopped). 4,496 x 1.4 = 6,294.4 miles.
