Running for a Cause
A loyal listener and guest of the station is running the Boston Marathon this year for a special cause. When you have a moment please read this message from Mark.
After the traumatic event at the Boston Marathon last year and in spirit of being a true Bostonian, this year I have committed to running my first marathon on the 2014 Dana Farber Marathon Challenge team. Seeing as most of my family and friends have successfully completed Boston several times, I planned on joining the ranks, running it with my older sister Erin, while supporting a great cause like the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. As plans always change, this past September Erin called me to let me know that I would have to run Boston without her. She had been recently diagnosed with breast cancer but vowed that she would be waiting at the finish line. The running of the 2014 Boston Marathon is going to have many different meanings and emotions for everyone but for me I will be running in honor of my sister Erin who has taught me that tough times do not last but tough people do. Erin has begun the fight with the support of our family, friends and from people like you. She’s “wicked tough” so I am positive she will be running Boston next year.I believe in the mission of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and have personally witnessed this organization’s commitment to helping those who are fighting cancer. As a direct result of the research and evolution of treatment options coming out of Dana-Farber, many of my family members have fought the battle against cancer. It’s about staying positive, keeping up hope and defeating this awful disease. There are over 20 million people fighting cancer right now and they need a real second chance…things like this fundraising, which folks like you support, provide that second chance. I hope you will consider supporting this fundraising cause once again this year.

Please forward this link/message on to anyone who you think would like to help me in supporting the fight against cancer.-Mark

Start your engines folks the Great Race is coming to Lowell. On Saturday June 21st drivers of the Hemmings Motor News will be making a stop-over in the Mill City. More than 100 vehicles will fill the streets as part of a nine day 21 hundred mile race. Drivers will be judged by a time, speed, distance combination which means they’ll be stopping and letting observers take a look at their rides. All automobiles are built before 1972 with many of them having been put together prior to WWII.
To get you in the mood our very own Jack Baldwin took time to model with one of the cars.
