Lake Placid names Monday ‘Boston Marathon Day’

LAKE PLACID — The Village of Lake Placid has declared today “Boston Marathon Day.” 

A resolution was passed on April 15, recalling the “catastrophic event” at last year’s race, “killing three, maiming many other and forever changing the lives of those affected ...”

After the bombing in the Massachusetts City, residents of Lake Placid showed their support to those affected with BostonStrongLP, a spontaneous group that organized a 3-mile walk/run that drew hundreds expressing solidarity.

That group, with the assistance of JetBlue, raised more than $12,000 for One Fund Boston to assist those recovering from injuries from the bombing, according to the Village Board resolution.

Lake Placid is no stranger to major sports events, having hosted two Winter Olympics and, annually, Ironman Lake Placid.

And the resolution makes note of that.

Villagers, Mayor Craig Randall said as he proclaimed Boston Marathon Day, are encouraged “in observance of this event, the significant sacrifices and efforts made by so many to ensure the successful running of this 118th Boston Marathon.”
