Samantha & Maria Lauring
Hii! I'm Samantha and my sister Maria and I are Worcester, MA natives. Maria and I both enjoy sports, as fans and participants. I played rugby for Clemson University and Maria played D1 soccer at Holy Cross. We both have run the Boston Marathon in the past and are excited to have the opportunity to run this year in particular.
On April 17th, 2013 (two days after the marathon bombing) I posted this on my Facebook; "I've decided I'm running Boston next year. I would like to let those coward terrorists know that they don't scare me." Boston is every bit my mecca. I take it very personally that someone would dare to attack my favorite city. A city that is home to many of my friends and family.
Keeping true to my word I am so honored and excited to have the opportunity to run the 118th Boston Marathon with Ace Bailey's Childrens Foundation. Please click on the following link and check out their website to learn more. They do amazing work for hospitalized children. http://acebailey.org/
Please lend your support in any way you can! I'm running for a great cause and I could really use the encouragement every step of the way... and there will be many, many steps!
