The Verdugo Hills Hospital Fitness Team is just $9,000 short of its goal to raise a total of $46,400 in sponsorship before it jets off to take part in the Marathon Des Deux Rives in Quebec, Canada, on Aug. 27. The 16-member team has been training at the Rose Bowl every Saturday morning for the past 10 weeks in preparation for the 26.2-mile marathon. While some plan to walk or run the full marathon, others are hoping to complete the 13.1-mile half-marathon. With only a couple of weeks to go before the big event, the team has put out a final plea for the community to help support its efforts by closing the fund-raising gap. "This is a great opportunity for our team members to meet their own personal fitness goals while at the same time raise money for the hospital," said Margaret Kean, president of the Verdugo Hills Hospital Foundation, who is also taking part in the marathon along with the hospital President and CEO Leonard LaBella.

Last weekend, Terry Engler held her third-annual silent auction in her La Cañada home. She spent months contacting local businesses to coordinate donated items for gift baskets and raffle items — from dinners and movie tickets to artwork, electronics and beauty products. Then Engler sent out invitations to 40 friends, family members and others she thought might want to help her raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. With the help of her sister, Rose Buss, Engler decorated her home with gift baskets and other goodies, including baked goods Buss helped prepare for sale at the event.

Four La Cañada Flintridge residents completed the Boston Marathon on Monday before two deadly bombs exploded near the finish area. One of them was 26-year-old Maryann Boosalis, who completed the 26.2-mile event roughly 45 minutes before the first explosion hit near the Boylston Street finish line. By that time, she was already in her hotel room with her mother. “I had no idea that anything happened until I saw the breaking news on TV,” she said. “It's scary and sad at the same time.” The explosions started at 2:42 p.m. local time, about two hours after the first runners had crossed the finish line.

After eight months of training students from Rosemont Middle School and Crescenta Valley High School boarded a bus about 4 a.m. on Monday and headed to downtown Los Angeles for the LA Marathon. The students were members of Student Run Los Angeles (SRLA) and joined over 3,000 other SRLA runners for the event. The marathon was originally scheduled for the first of March but LA City Council changed the date to May 25 due to complaints from local churches. The students trained an extra two months and were a little concerned about the heat but the weather cooperated and all their training paid off.

The 16 members of the Verdugo Hills Hospital Fitness Team returned to work this week a little bit sore and tired but in high spirits after completing the Marathon Des Duex Rives in Quebec, Canada, on Aug. 27. For most team members, who spent 10 weeks working out at the Rose Bowl every Saturday with professional trainer Robert Mills, it was their first time taking part in a race of any length. Some team members walked or ran - or did a combination of both - in the 13.1-mile half-marathon while others took on the full 26.2-mile-long marathon.
