UVA President Jim Ryan will be running in the Boston Marathon to honor the lives of three football players who were killed in a tragic shooting on grounds last year.
Ryan took to Facebook on Monday to share pictures of him wearing a race shirt with the “UVA Strong” logo on the front and the victims’ names on the back.
This tribute comes after the Virginia football team’s annual Blue-White Game on Saturday at Scott Stadium.
As we’ve reported previously, on Nov. 13, Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry were shot and killed on a charter bus as they returned from a field trip in Washington, D.C.
Two others, Mike Hollins and Marlee Morgan, were also hurt in the shooting, but fortunately, they survived.
