Marathon runners grateful for support

To the editor:

We would like to say thank you to all our friends and neighbors for their generous and enthusiastic support of this year's Boston Marathon run for Alzheimer's. We were able to reach the finish line and pass our fundraising goal with over $8,500 for the MA/NH Alzheimer's Association. All donations help to advance research and keep support services free to those in need.

Thank you to Immaculate Conception Parish and St. James Amesbury, Circuit Technology Center, Flatbread Co., Natural High Fitness, Crave, Hyman's Footwear, Darrell Cox Massage, The Screening Room , Rick Bayko Yankee Runner, The Grog, Alden Merrell, Life is Good, Plum Island Roaster and Lulu Lemon.

The 115th Boston Marathon is now part of history. Thanks to your generosity. One day Alzheimer's will be part of history too.

Dale Ann and Dale Bob Eckert
