[The Boston Marathon always includes a pack of runners from our town. Between now and Patriots Day, I’m featuring stories of resident runners donning bibs for a cause]
Southborough resident Penelope Hauck has run in six Boston Marathons. She’s using her seventh run next week to raise funds for “You Can Play”:
Hi everyone, I am honored and excited to be taking part in the 126th Boston Marathon to raise awareness and money for You Can Play.
You Can Play works to ensure the safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, including LGBTQ+ athletes, coaches and fans. This is achieved by creating a community of allies that is able to foster a true sense of belonging, does great work for a cause that’s centered around inclusion, love, and respect for all. Support this incredible organization and me as I run this year in my 7th Boston Marathon race.
