The 46th New York City Marathon took place on Sunday. Among the 52,000 runners were Penn Staters Stephanie Littell and Ashley Vargas ’14, both of whom ran to raise money to support the families of fallen first responders.

Both women were members of team “Answer the Call – The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Fund.” Littell, a Penn State grad student working toward her master’s in homeland security, cited the work she does with the NYPD as her reason for joining the team. Vargas is an NYC resident who called it an honor to run in support of the people who keep the city safe.

The two managed to finish within a few minutes of one another: According to the unofficial results of the race, Littell crossed the finish line in 4:23:51 and Vargas finished in 4:34:25.
