Quincy woman, others in marathon for a cause
Alexandria Lynch, called “Allie’’ by family and friends, never got the chance to be paired with a friend through Best Buddies, the organization Anthony Kennedy Shriver founded in 1989 to match volunteers with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In 2007, at age 13, she died in her sleep while napping on the couch at home in Quincy. Now sister Susanna Lynch, 25, is running the Boston Marathon for Best Buddies to honor Allie.
