Granite Staters Come Together to Help Out During a Rainy Boston Marathon
It was a big day in New England on Monday as the Boston Marathon took place, and according to WMUR, hundreds of New Hampshire residents volunteered to help out during the event.
Becky Shaughnessy of Manchester said the day was "extra special" on the anniversary of the bombing, the news station reported.
"I wanna shout out to all the people from New Hampshire who volunteered their time and gave a helping hand at the marathon. Without these volunteers from New Hampshire, it would be difficult to pull this off. So a special thanks to them."
That's what life is all about, right? Helping others?
Even though the weather was crappy and rainy, many of the volunteers from New Hampshire came prepared, WMUR stated.
Sure, I know a lot of people always complain about the weather, but I was once told by a person from Iceland that, "It's not the weather, it's your clothes." And guess what, it's so true.
If you come prepared, no problems. Remind me of that come next February.
Despite the rain and thunderstorms, Shaughnessy said the volunteers were ready to help out.
The volunteers were happy to support the runners, according to WMUR.
"Just to be there, to say, 'Congratulations. You did it,' and to be a part of it, it's an amazing feeling," Andrea Destefano of Litchfield told the news station.
Talk about coming together. #Bostonstrong
