Marathon runner, Mount alum reflects on tragic day in Boston

March 15, 2014

WOONSOCKET — With the one-year anniversary of the deadly Boston Marathon attacks fast approaching, Dr. David King, a Mount Saint Charles Academy alumnus and trauma surgeon who ran the 2013 marathon and then helped save the lives of dozens of people injured in the blasts, visited his alma mater Friday to deliver a message of hope and inspiration.

King, a graduate of the the Mount Saint Charles Academy Class of 1991, spoke to the entire student body, delivering a 90-minute presentation that was both a first-hand account of the events of April 15, 2013, as well as a motivational talk in which King urged his audience of young Mounties to look beyond the tragedy that killed three people and injured 260 more.
