Bristol woman running in memory of her brother — follow along


marathoner13Lauren Gablinske’s quest to run the Boston Marathon while raising money for the Samaritans in honor of her late brother Derek is in the homestretch. She is once again raising the bar on her fundraising goal, as she closes in on $30,000, establishing herself as one of the top fundraisers in a field of hundreds running for a cause.

“The outpouring of support has been more than I ever could have thought,” she said. “I couldn’t be more appreciative.”

You can follow Lauren’s progress on race day at the official Boston Marathon website. Her bib # is 29657. There’s still plenty of time to donate as well. Visit Lauren’s site or email her at
