It’s hard to believe it, but April 15th will mark 5 years since the Boston Marathon bombing.

Heather Abbott, a Newport resident who lost a portion of her leg during the Boston Marathon bombing, joined Frank Prosnitz and I today on What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport to chat about The Heather Abbott Foundation, her Boston Marathon runners, upcoming fundraisers, Marathon Monday, and much more.
