Congratulations to DelValle Institute Staff for Completing Boston Marathon 2014

Congratulations to DelValle Institute staff members Nicole Naudé, Program Manager for Media and Technology, and Sejal Vashi, Senior Program Manager, for completing this year's Boston Marathon! While accustomed to working long days supporting logistics at the finish line medical tents in year's past, Nicole and Sejal took on a different challenge this year tackling the 26.2 mile course. After just four months of training, these new marathoners came up Boylston Street with smiles on their faces and thoughts of running more marathons in their future. Congratulations!
