EMILY GOSSELIN | stage 336 | MA
I'm running because I really want to give back to help everyone that was affected by this tragedy. No one should ever have to experience what the people at the finish line went through that day. By participating in this race to benefit the One Fund, I can do my part to help them to move on and lead normal lives. And on a personal level, I live in Watertown only a mile from where the bombers were found. That day was the scariest experience of my life. It hits so close to home and I feel that by joining this cause, I am taking a stand and fighting back.
