Secret Service agent competing in Boston Marathon with a powerful mission

Just four months into his dream job as a Secret Service agent, Garrett Fitzgerald’s vehicle was involved in an accident with another driver who was high on heroin, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. On Monday he’ll compete in the Boston Marathon with help from fellow agent Don McGrail.

The Boston Marathon course starts in Hopkinton, MA and ends on Boylston Street in Boston, MA.

The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world’s most prestigious road racing events. The B.A.A. continues to manage this American classic, which has been sponsored by John Hancock Financial since 1986.

According to Boston.com, More than 30,000 Boston Marathon runners will take off from Hopkinton on Monday, April 15 — but not all at once. Runners leave the starting line in waves to make space on the course, with the first batch of racers departing at 9:02 a.m. and the final wave beginning at 11:15 a.m.
