Yesterday, President Obama promised that “we will run again.” He was referring to the 2014 Boston Marathon.
But in Westport, anyone of any ability will get the chance to run as soon as tomorrow.
A grassroots group invites everyone — runners, walkers, bikers, spectators — to a community run/walk. It begins at 8 a.m., at Compo Beach.
Donations will be collected for the family of 8-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed after hugging his father at the finish line, and his 7-year-old sister Jane, who lost her leg; 27-year-old Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs as he waited for his girlfriend to finish, and the Boston Marathon team and first responders.
After a few words in memory of those killed and maimed in Boston, the run/walk will begin. The route loops around Green’s Farms Road.
Great Cakes is sponsoring the event.
