Lost foot in the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon will again run the distance


Boston dancer Adrianna Haslett-Davis, who lost her leg during the terrorist attacks on the city marathon in 2013, is going to conquer a distance that she could not run past due to the explosion.

The American was forced to amputate his foot to the knee after it was hit by a splinter from the second bomb exploded on the Boston Marathon more than two years ago. Then the explosion & nbsp; hit & nbsp; it directly & nbsp; near the finish line.

Now the American plans to run the entire 21-kilometer distance of the half-marathon, using a nylon-made carbon fiber prosthesis. Her race will be timed to the collection of money for the charitable organization Limbs for Life, which helps poor people with amputated limbs to purchase expensive dentures.

"I know this will be a strong step if I can do it & mdash; but not only for me, & nbsp; but for all people suffering from amputation, "& nbsp; & mdash; Has told & nbsp; Haslett-Davis.
