A Springfield College student is gearing up to run as part of a charity team at the Boston Marathon on Monday.

A back injury started her on the path to running in this event.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Springfield College graduate student Gianna Napoli pursued her passion for fitness after recovering from a back injury and losing nearly 70 pounds.

“I lost weight after I hurt my back, so I went a while with like not working out I’ve always been active, so I definitely missed it a lot,” said Gianna Napoli, a Springfield College graduate student.
