Making a Difference in Our Community and Beyond

On April 20, 2015, President, Barry Zimmermann, will be running in his second Boston Marathon!! This year’s charity is dedicated to the National Wounded Warrior Center located in Mammoth Mountain, CA. The Center empowers wounded, sick and injured servicemen and women by facilitating their transitions into fulfilling civilian lives. The Center rehabilitates, educates and offers counseling to these heroes.

Boston Marathon 2014 recap:

A year after the bombing, the theme “Boston Strong” or on some T-shirts, Boston Stronguh rings true. Blue and yellow are the colors throughout Boston and daffodils are everywhere – spring hopes eternal.

Over 100,000 daffodils were planted along the marathon route and are in every window throughout the city. The city is alive with the Red Sox in town and the Bruins, at home, in the playoffs. The 118th Boston Marathon was a perfect day.
