It certainly makes you appreciate life, hearing some of the stories, folks went up to run a marathon, never expecting something like this to happen.

Adrian Grieve, a regional emergency services officer, is one of two Red Crossers from Northeastern Pennsylvania who made the trek to Boston to help victims of the bombings. "It certainly makes you appreciate life, hearing some of the stories, folks went up to run a marathon, never expecting something like this to happen,” said Adrian.

Adrian was in Boston for nine days, providing support at a family assistance center, which supplied mental health services and financial support to those in need. "I think people left with a sense of knowing where to go next. Although for many it's going to be a long road to recovery." Adrian was joined by 150 Red Crossers from different states.
