Running the London Marathon for Charity

Runners in Sunday's London Marathon are determined not to let the bombs that struck the Boston counterpart from stopping them. That includes the mother of a deaf toddler, who is running to to raise 2000 pounds for National Deaf Children’s Society. 34-year-old Lauren Rapacioli wants to give back to the charity for its help in understanding how to help her son. Bobby was diagnosed as profoundly deaf just a month after his birth. Rapacioli says she did not know anything about deaf children, but the NDCS stepped in to help her join a local support group for parents with deaf children. Find out more about her effort here.
