“The character of a champion includes overcoming adversity.

In last year’s marathon, Lelila Desisa was the champion.

Desisa felt touched by the tragedy, and he wanted to bring the champions medal and present it back to the city of Boston.

He came back to present that most cherished of symbols to a city that had shown the resilience of a champion. His way of saying, ‘We’re all champions; we all share this.'”

-B.A.A. Exec. Director Thomas Grilk
