Boston Marathon survivor Heather Abbott to speak at Bridgewater College

On April 15, 2013, Heather Abbott set out on an annual tradition with six friends. She planned to attend the Red Sox baseball game, walk over to the Boston Marathon finish line and gather at the Forum Restaurant. The events that day changed her life forever. At about 2:49 p.m., two pressure cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring an estimated 264.
