Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo and video of the day.
Jak Miller began working at the Hopkinton Public Library last June, becoming the young adult librarian in November. Since then, Miller has been so enamored with the library that she volunteered to run this month’s Boston Marathon to raise money for her relatively new workplace.
There are 50 individuals from Hopkinton who registered to run this year’s Boston Marathon, and we have the complete list.
Like most Hopkinton residents, Chris Mastroianni grew up watching the start of the Boston Marathon. On Monday, the 23-year-old will line up with the thousands of other runners for his first attempt at running 26.2 miles, raising money for Project Just Because in the process.
The motto on the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation website reads: “Honor our past, build our future.” That sentiment is appropriately demonstrated by Hopkinton resident Colleen Reilly, who will run Monday’s Boston Marathon while raising funds for the organization.
Leading off our roundup of local Boston Marathon runners, Kayla McCann, a 2020 graduate of Hopkinton High School, is running this month for the Canty’s Underdog Scholarship Fund, while resident Jessica Clancy will take on her first marathon as a benefit for Hopkinton Little League.
Tim Kilduff is widely recognized as Hopkinton’s can-do man when it comes to all things Boston Marathon. Hopkinton’s Start Line Brewing Company, recognizing Kilduff’s contributions to the race and the town, is making him its can man for 2022.
