The 2017 Boston Marathon was full of sights and sounds that proved why the capital of Massachusetts is such a special city.
Governor Charlie Baker shared a touching finish line moment, via video on Twitter, that exhibits the camaraderie and compassion that define the race.
Runners Mike Korfhage and Michael Leech, along with two serviceman, not only carried fellow runner Jake Mogan to the finish line but also ran the final distance together as a group.
