Given all that happened last year in my home city during the Boston Marathon, it was truly inspiring watching the city come together in support. The Boston Marathon victims showed their strength and courage with each step of their recovery and demonstrated what it means to be "Boston Strong". On April 21st, the 2014 Boston Marathon runners will put one foot in front of the other and complete an impressive physical and mental feat of 26.2 miles as an entire city cheers them on.
At Live In Mosaics, we are especially proud to cheer on Boston Marathon Runner Elizabeth Amorello in her run for Tufts Medical Centers Floating Hospital. "Running the Boston Marathon has been a huge and seemingly ambitious goal of mine since I started running marathons 4 years ago", says Elizabeth.
Elizabeth is hosting a fundraiser at Bell In Hand on Friday, March 7th from 6 - 9 pm and has a goal of raising $7,500. It is located at 45-55 Union Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02108.
