First story

Second story

Third story

As the day wore on, heroic tales of emergency response teams also began to surface. After reportedly pushing a wheelchair-bound woman to safety zone, the first-responder returned to the bombing scene of the chaos to help others.

Fourth story

Runners crossed the finish line after running 42 kilometres, but they didn’t stop there. They continue on to Massachusetts Hospital to donate blood. So many showed up, that they have been asked to schedule for future donation

Fifth story

Nearby restaurants offered free meals, shelter, internet connections and even just a place to go for anyone who didn’t “want to be alone.”

After all

In spite of everything, runners still showed up to pick up their medals in Boston.
