Holy Cross sophomore Maggie Wiggin is preparing for her first Boston Marathon this year. Running to raise funds for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Wiggin has a special connection as the Institute helped her mom beat ovarian cancer. Wiggin was partnered with Jayla, a four-year-old Worcester native battling leukemia, currently being treated at the Institute. “She is going to be at mile 25, it’s just an amazing last mile and seeing them just helps you get to the finish line,” said Wiggin.
Wiggin will not only be representing the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, but also the College as a Holy Cross Crusader. “I’m really excited to represent Holy Cross, I’ve had a great two years here and I’m really looking forward to the Marathon,” Wiggin told Worcester News Tonight’s Brittany Schaefer.
