Dimitri Kyriakides: The Meaning of the Marathon

What does the Boston Marathon mean to you? Are you a runner hoping to complete your first race? A seasoned competitor, or a spectator along the course? Or maybe you’re interested in the history of the sport.

Just days before the start of the 117th Boston Marathon, HCAM News spoke with Dimitri Kyriakides, the Goodwill Ambassador of the Municipality of Marathon, Greece, and the son of Stylianos Kyriakides, the winner of the 1946 Boston Marathon, during his visit to Boston.

For Dimitri, coming to Boston is like a memorial to his father. Listen as he talks about the importance of the history of the marathon, why he thinks the Boston Marathon is special, and why he thinks the sport of marathoning goes beyond running.

Hopkinton Middle School Lip Dub Now Online!

The entire Middle School student body recently participated in a student-wide lip dub, where students took turns lip-syncing to Lady Gaga's "Born this Way". The video, produced by HCAM Station Manager Jim Cozzens, was filmed in February after several months of planning.

But the final product wasn't revealed until an assembly on April 9th. And to the shock of the students, the lip dub was only just a portion of the video. The big surprise came at the end when it was revealed that the faculty had also filmed their own dance to the "Cupid Shuffle".

The lip dub was more than just a way to get the whole school to come together and have fun, as the reason behind both the video and the song choice was to illustrate the concept of acceptance.

Watch the HCAM News video below for highlights of the premier playing at the Middle School.
