Boston Marathon 2015 Runner Profile: Kevin Handly, of Jamaica Plain

Kevin is running in the Boston Marathon for the fifth time. Boston Marathon 2015 Runner Profile: Kevin Handly, of Jamaica Plain Name: Kevin Handly Age: 62 Profession: I am a corporate and bank regulatory attorney. Marathon experience: This will be my 5th Boston Marathon, my 8th overall. Reason for running: I run the Boston Marathon because I can, because Susan Hurley and all my other charity team running mates are doing it, because I don’t have tickets to the Red Sox game that day and because there is no better, more joyful way to celebrate living in this great city of ours. This is one of the greatest athletic events in the world and I have a chance to participate as a competitor. Charity: I’m running for the charity WalkBoston, which is dedicated to promoting pedestrian activity, safety, access and awareness throughout Massachusetts.

Run for a charity you believe in and you will find great meaning and great friends in your life. Bib number: 16852
