Another opportunity to finish: runner supports school for the blind as she runs again on this year’s Marathon Monday

Another opportunity to finish: runner supports school for the blind as she runs again on this year’s Marathon Monday

It was barely seven hours before when Jennifer Pflug, indifferent to the mid-April chill, left her sweatshirt near the starting line. She knew it would be donated to Big Brother and Big Sister.

Her Team Perkins singlet, worn with pride, proved she was no stranger to acts of charitable kindness. She knew, too, that she had supporters flanking checkpoints along the Marathon route: a man from Perkins School for the Blind cheering on his team at mile 19, cousins at the halfway mark and more family and friends at the finish line.

It was April 15, 2013, and the warmth of spring was beginning to win its final fight against the harsh New England winter.
