Valentine’s Boston Marathon Flash Mob: #Valentine4Boston

On April 15, 2013 tragedy struck Boston. The attack was meant to bring the city to its knees.

Jessica Kensky and her husband Patrick Downes were near the finish line when the bombs went off. They were both seriously injured.

This Valentine’s Jess wanted to do something special for Patrick. When she reached out to friends, Jess never could have anticipated the response…

…her gift to Patrick grew into something much bigger…a Valentine for the whole city. The people of Boston are not just standing strong… they’re dancing!

#Valentine4Boston was held at Copley Place, just a short distance from the site of the bombings that changed these lives forever.

It gave survivors, doctors and nurses, social workers, government agencies and others a forum to express their love and appreciation for the city of Boston. It’s a way for those still reeling from the impact of that horrendous event to say thank you to Boston — thank you for the incredible support you continue to show, and for being a city that is so resilient.

The flash mob was organized by NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans http://www.neads.org
