BEYOND THE FINISH LINE WITH JEFF BAUMAN

Wednesday, Sep. 30th, 11:30am-1:30pm

May Street

Worcester, MA

Join Jeff Bauman as he shares his amazing, inspirational story of perseverance and hope. On April 15, 2013, Jeff stood at the finish line of the Boston Marathon eagerly awaiting his girlfriend Erin, who was running in support of a local charity. As he waited, an ominous looking man dressed in dark clothing appeared, and Jeff immediately had a sinking feeling. The man who seemed so out of place on such a festive day dropped a black back pack, only feet away from Bauman and moments later, the first of two explosions rocked Boylston Street. Jeff was gravely injured, losing both of his legs along with other serious injuries. When the smoke cleared and Jeff realized what had happened, he immediately thought he was going to die. Then, amongst the smoke and carnage appeared Carlos Arrendondo, a peace activist who was at the marathon that day to hand out American flags in honor of his fallen sons. Carlos, now known as the man in the cowboy hat, quickly lifted Jeff and got him to an ambulance, saving his life. Later that day, a photo of Jeff and Carlos surfaced and is now the most iconic image of the marathon tragedy. Jeff recently published a book recounting his experiences called Stronger and he has remained a beacon of hope, strength and resilience since that tragic day.

The Bookstore will be selling his book at the lecture and Jeff will sign books following the lecture.

This lecture is co-sponsored with the Student Events Committee, Counseling Services, and the Binienda Center for Civic Engagement and Student Occupational Therapy Association.
