EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am honored to have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon on the Run for Krystle team for the second time. Krystle was a student in UMass Boston's College of Management before her life was tragically taken from her in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Not only do I work at the university, where her legacy lives on through this scholarship, but I am also an alumna of the College of Management, having received my MBA in 2016. This one is for you, Krystle!

Funds raised through the Run for Krystle Marathon Program will support the Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund. This fund was started in memory of UMass Boston alumna, Krystle Campbell, who lost her life in the 2013 marathon bombing. Out of this heartbreak, symbols of strength, perseverance, and solidarity have emerged. One inspiring example is the generous donation from UMass Trustee Richard Campbell, who established this scholarship fund to support educational opportunities for students like Krystle, pursuing a degree in business at the University of Massachusetts. Krystle Campbell's enthusiasm for learning, dedication to her family, and remarkable work ethic live on in the scholarship fund established in her name.
