Twins Run Boston Marathon

Leah has finished the Boston Marathon three times while Malinda has cheered. Leah finished her 1st in 2013, 2nd in 2014 and 3rd in 2015. Leah qualified for the 2017 Boston Marathon at the 2015 Chicago Marathon. Unfortunately, Malinda failed her 10th attempt to BQ at the Rock 'n' Roll DC Marathon. Malinda has one last chance to BQ at the Rivanna Greenbelt Marathon on Saturday, September 10. We hope that twins run Boston 2017 together!

#OneBostonDay - Old South Church in Boston

Photo taken by @MalindaAnnHill on April 19, 2014

On #OneBostonDay, April 15, 2016, Old South Church in Boston, The Church of the Finish Line, marks the three-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedies with a gentle Interfaith Service of Resiliency at 2:30 pm in partnership with the Massachusetts Resiliency Center.

Former Governor Deval Patrick will speak and it will be broadcast live via New England Cable News (NECN). The service will pause at 2:49pm to observe the statewide moment of silence.

The public is also invited to take part in An Expression of Resiliency on Canvas in front of the church from 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm.

Old South Church in Boston is located 100 feet from the Boston Marathon finish line and since April 2013 has ministered to survivors and first responders including many in the congregation. 

The Massachusetts Resiliency Center provides support and services to victims of the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and related events. The Resiliency Center is a survivor driven and survivor led organization created to make the process of getting support and assistance easier for the widespread, global community of survivors.
