About Liz T: Liz passed away tragically at age 23 during a hiking accident in Hawaii on June 22, 2013. We will never forget Liz and the unforgettable love that she shared with all who knew her. We think of Liz every day, and we will miss her forever.

This year, a team of runners will be running the 2016 Boston Marathon in her honor on April 18, 2016, and to raise funds for the Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Some of the runners on our team were at the site of the attack in Boston on April 15, 2013, and Liz's father, Christopher, was injured in the blast. In true "Boston Strong" spirit, Chris -- a perennial volunteer on Marathon Day -- will be running the Boston Marathon again in his daughter's memory. This will be his 3rd year in a row running Boston.

Pictures of our Liz:

Elizabeth was living her dream in Hawaii, working in a post-graduate program at C & S Wholesalers after graduating from Georgia Tech with honors in the Class of 2011, and from Braintree High School in the Class of 2007. The funds raised for the Memorial Scholarship will benefit young women from Braintree High who exhibit the values Liz held throughout her life, including high academic achievement, community engagement, strength of character, and a love of learning that drove Liz toward her dreams.
