Stand up: Boston Strong Day is April 21
Posted on April 8, 2014
Wheaton will celebrate the 118th running of the Boston Marathon with its own Boston Strong Day on Monday, April 21. All employees, with permission of their supervisors, are encouraged to wear appropriate casual attire with a Boston Marathon, Boston Strong (blue and yellow), Boston, or Wheaton (blue and white) logo, colors and/or scenes.
Everyone is invited to watch the progress of the Marathon on the TVs in Balfour-Hood Café and the Game Room on the first floor of Balfour-Hood. There will be lots of Boston-themed food and drink available. Donations to the One Fund, established last year to aid the victims of the 2013 Marathon bombing, will be accepted in Balfour-Hood from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of Staff Council will man the collection table.
There will also be a large banner available for any member of the Wheaton community to inscribe the name and number of a runner whose progress we can track and cheer.
