Strongman pushes for bombing victims

On April 12, 2014, in Latest News, by The Somerville Times

bowser_webJerry Bowser, also known as the “Boston Brawler” from his professional wrestling days, will carry, in a wheelbarrow, 2,350 pounds 900 feet across Ball Square in order to raise money for two friends of his who each lost a leg during last year’s Boston Marathon bombing. It will cost each man $1.4 million to get and maintain a prosthetic leg through the age of 70. He will begin the power push at 2 p.m. Saturday April 19.

This event is for Boston Marathon victims and will recognize MIT Police Officer Sean Collier who made the ultimate sacrifice.

    I get the spirit, but not the implementation: to help his friends who lost a leg, he will bust his back? Cannot you do something else?
