Boston Strong

After the terrible tragedy that occurred during the 2013 Boston Marathon, it was a mandatory response by all of us (GN Crew Boston), to show our support to the victims and heroes the best way we know how; by boldly advertising our support and pride for the city we love and serve.

Each member contributed to this monument, either with filling in, buffing out the background, or dusting in shine effects all while keeping to the color system of the Boston Athletic Association.

Many nearby observers stopped by to show their support. There was even an article that appeared on

Overall the experience was very rewarding, and while the dedication is no longer standing (wall was demolished  for upcoming for residential developments), there was a great sense of pride in standing strong behind our city, the victims of the marathon and first responders.
