EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing left three people dead, hundreds more injured, and millions of people around the world stunned. Krystle Campbell was one of three victims whose lives were tragically cut short on April 15, 2013.
Krystle Campbell’s enthusiasm for learning, dedication to her family, and remarkable work ethic live on in the scholarship fund established in her name at her alma mater, the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund will support educational opportunities for women pursuing a degree in business at UMass. Thanks to the generosity of family, friends and the UMass network, the fund has already raised more than $300,000.
As a member of the 2015 Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund Marathon Team, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to accomplish one of my life-long goals in Krystle’s honor. As an employee and alumna of the University, and a life-long Boston-area resident, this cause is extremely close to my heart. I hope that you will consider supporting Krystle’s legacy by making a donation to the Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund to help other young women to achieve their dreams.
