Krystle Campbell Memorial Fund
Annually since 2014, the Boston Athletic Association has presented the family of Krystle Campbell with bib numbers to disseminate to friends and family to run in Boston Marathon in remembrance of their daughter Krystle. Krystle was one of the three victims who lost their life on April 15th, 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line.
Krystle was a close friend to many throughout the Boston area. She worked as a restaurant and catering manager for many years at the Summer Shack in Boston, MA and had most recently been a manager at Jimmy’s Steer House in Arlington, MA. Krystle’s family and friends enjoy celebrating her life by remembering her infectious energy and enthusiasm, her love of family and friends, and her kind-hearted nature that is displayed toward all. Krystle is survived by her parents, Patricia and the late William Campbell, and her brother Billy Campbell and his family. Since 2014, the Campbell family has reached out to a group of Krystle’s close friends to utilize the numbers to develop a team of runners as well as organize and host a variety of events to promote donations to the Krystle Campbell Memorial Fund at The Boston Foundation. The Boston Foundation receives gifts from a variety of different donors and utilizes those resources to make grants to nonprofit organizations that serve the Greater Boston community. The Campbell family is working with The Boston Foundation and hope the donations to the Krystle Campbell Memorial Fund will be utilized annually to make charitable donations in Krystle’s memory, most recently of which was given to the Center for Citizenship and Social Responsibility (CCSR) in Medford Public Schools. “26.2 In the City She Loved”
