The Boston Marathon holds a special place in my family and has been a part of my life since I was a child. I remember fondly as my Mom would bring myself, my sister Andrea, my sister Karen, and my sister Debbie to Washington Square in Brookline, so that we could cheer the runners on marathon Monday each April. Many Murphys have run and completed the Boston Marathon: my son Christopher, my daughter-in-law Jacki, my daughter Alexis and my nieces Jennifer and Lauren have all successfully completed the marathon, paying tribute to the enduring memory of my mom and sister and championing a number of charitable causes throughout the years. The 2013 Boston Marathon tragedy particularly touched my family, as my daughter Alexis and niece Jennifer crossed the finish line as the bomb's explosion rang out through the air. My family has run the Boston Marathon each and every year since 2013, in loving memory of my mother, my sister and all the lives touched by the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
