Among today's runners: Brother of woman shot to death on Blue Hill Avenue

Ian Jaffier is running to raise money for the West End House in Allston, where he and his sister Dawnn basically grew up. Dawnn Jaffier was shot to death in 2014 in a gun battle she had nothing to do with. Her brother, who still works part-time at the West End House, writes:

Each mile of the marathon represent a year in her life: 26 miles for 26 years. I am excited and know that with all your help, I will be able to achieve anything.

I never heard of the West End House before Dawn Jaffier was killed, but since that tragedy, I've have heard a ton of great things, including from some friends who have worked there.

Impressed by Mr Jaffier's effort and heading to his website now to donate a few bucks.

and the Jaffiers are a wonderful family who have suffered an unthinkable loss. Thinking of them today, wishing Ian a great race and yes, hoping he meets his goal!
