For the second straight year, a contingent representing the Boston Scholar Athletes program will run the Boston Marathon to raise money for the program that supports Boston public school athletics.
Here's a story about last year's BSA team that ran the marathon.
Boston residents, Elizabeth Collins and Joseph Cappellano are running the marathon for the BSA for the second straight year on April 15 while Kimberly Norris and Shanell Mosley will be running for the BSA through an entry provided by John Hancock for the first time this year.
The runners were chosen by the BSA Boston Marathon Selection Committee.
Collins and Norris both work for Suffolk Construction, whose CEO, John Fish, founded the BSA.
Mosley is a BSA Zone facilitator at Dorchester Academy while Cappellano is a BSA senior Zone facilitator who works out of the O'Bryant school.
