The last 13 months have been full of challenges, joy, sadness and surprises, some very good-some horrific. On April 15, 2013 evil visited our city.

As a result, the Campus School will host its own marathon on April 13, the week before the official Boston Marathon. The Campus School’s decision to host its own marathon to honor the hard work of its runners is wise and students should still support the runners.
