Meet Boston Marathon Runner Fe Ahrens

By Emme Punches,
Special Olympics Massachusetts Events Coordinator

Fe Ahrens is no stranger to the Boston Marathon. On April 17th she will start her strenuous 26.2 mile run fe-ahrensfrom Hopkinton to the streets of Boston for the third time. Fe ran for Special Olympics Massachusetts in 2015 after getting to know us through her position in sponsorship marketing and work with the non-profit program at John Hancock. While her position affords Fe a bib for the marathon she knows running for SOMA is about so much more than a physical test, it is an admirable cause that deserves her full attention and fundraising efforts. She understands the influence that athletics can have on a person and has a strong desire to share that with Special Olympics.

“Special Olympics represents joy and opportunity. Sports played a huge role in my life growing up. Sports have allowed me to build my self-confidence, while being challenged by my peers. Sports have taught me patience, importance of teamwork, and determination. There’s no better feeling than the joy of crossing the finish line. Special Olympics ensures that no one is denied the joy and opportunity behind sports”

We want to thank Fe for her selfless and courageous pursuit of the Boston Marathon finish line in support of Special Olympics Massachusetts!
