Boston Marathon Story Ideas

Two of the racers in this year’s Boston Marathon will be a husband-and-wife team from Clemson University: faculty member Heather Dunn and her husband, Wally, a grants coordinator in the College of Engineering and Science. She will be running with the Dana-Farber Marathon team in honor of another Clemson faculty member who is fighting cancer. The Dunns also ran in the Boston Marathon last year when the bombings occurred. Here’s more about them: bit.ly/R0Jekr. For more information, contact Heather (864-656-2516, walkerd@clemson.edu), Wally (864-656-0958, jdunn3@clemson.edu) or Susan Benson (864-650-4615, benson2@clemson.edu).

Robbie Fitzwater of the university Marketing Services office will be running in his third Boston Marathon. He will be part of the Mustache Running Club with six friends from around the country. Two close friends passed the location of the bombing last year just minutes before the blasts and he is looking forward to seeing them cross the finish line this year. Contact Fitzwater at 864-656-3867 or rfitzwa@clemson.edu.

Story Ideas

Tom and Jerry, the two iconic cannons overlooking Bowman Field, will get new wheels during the next several months. The cannons have been resting on makeshift concrete bases but soon they’ll be mounted on historically accurate wheeled carriages. The project will be the culmination of a two-year effort by professor Chris Pagano and Katie Strathman, a member of the Pershing Rifles.
