One Run Boston
About 100 students, alumni, administrators and faculty members ran, jogged and walked from the UMass Dartmouth campus to Boston Common Sunday, as their part of “One Run Boston” relay. It’s part of a nationwide run that started June 7th in California, and ended early Monday morning in Boston. The purpose of the run is to raise money for “One Fund Boston”, the entity that will distribute a total of 61-million dollars to Boston Marathon bombing victims and their families. UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Divina Grossman was hired one year ago and said the community spirit displayed by the UMass Dartmouth contingent, was quite an anniversary present. The cross country group of runners traveled more than 3-thousand miles thru 14 states.
