Some notable participants in Sunday’s Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk included Mo Vaughn, who supported the “Jason and Mo Friendship Fund” team in honor of the late Jason Leader, a Jimmy Fund Clinic patient he met 20 years ago (Vaughn hit a home run for Jason as a birthday gift); the family of late MIT police officer Sean Collier; and Robin Tarani, who became the first leg amputee to complete the walk in its 25-year history. Tarani, 50, whose left leg was amputated two years ago after a traffic accident, had set the walking goal both for herself and as a message to the Marathon bombing victims. Walking with her sister Cami Carter and a backpack containing a spare prosthesis, Tarani completed the 26.2-mile course in just under 10 hours. “We stopped several times, but we did it,” Tarani said Monday. “It was a long day, and I ended up with a wicked blister on my big toe. I’m wearing my Crocs today.” Her next goal? To run a half marathon. “But it will have to be a flat course.”
