“Last year, Stephanie Galvani of Natick ran the Boston Marathon and raised more than $6,000 to support the Newton 9/11 Memorial Fund. This year her cousin, Brad Hauert, of Denver, Colo., also ran the Marathon and has so far raised $5,000 for the Memorial Fund.”
A big thank you to Brad Hauert, who is running the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds for the Newton 9-11 Memorial Committee! Brad, who attended graduate school at Boston College and works in aviation in Arizona, was inspired to run by the memory of Amy Toyen. Amy is one of the Newton residents listed on the Memorial. Please visit Brad’s race website, which can be found here. Funds raised will go toward the maintenance of the Memorial.

Stephanie Galvani is a 37 year-old wife, mother and teacher who will be running the 2014 Boston Marathon for the first time. She has decided to raise money to support the Newton 9-11 Memorial and we are very grateful for that. She is also running to honor the memory of Amy Toyen, one of the eight Newton residents whose names are inscribed on the memorial. To donate and to read more about why she is running, please visit www.runstephanierun.com.
On Sunday, October 20, 9am – 2pm, we will be joining the effort to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing by planting daffodils along the Boston Marathon route in Newton. We need to let them know how many people will be there. The holes will be dug by Parks and Rec so all we have to do is plant the bulbs.
Please contact Sande Young at Ssyspts33@aol.com if you would like to participate.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you can make it.
The planting will be somewhere on Commonwealth Avenue and we will update this post as soon as we know.
