Meghan Morrow, who works as a sign-language interpreter at North Star Academy elementary school in Minnesota, is an entrant in today's 116th running of the Boston Marathon. Morrow is part of Team Hoyt, which includes Dick Hoyt, 71, who will run the marathon for the 30th time while pushing the wheelchair holding his son, Rick, 50, who has cerebral palsy. "I feel I have a responsibility to teach the children I work with that they have the ability to do great and be great," Morrow wrote in an essay seeking a spot on the team.
