Pathfinder International Saddened by Tragedy in Boston; All Staff Members Safe

Pathfinder is shocked and saddened by the senseless tragedy yesterday during the Boston Marathon. Our thoughts are with all of those affected by this horrific act. We are thankful that all staff and family of staff at our headquarters in Watertown, MA are safe.

Though no staff members were running the marathon this year, several were in the near vicinity of the finish line and one former Pathfinder staff member had recently finished the race.
Messages of support have been pouring in from our offices around the world. We appreciate the kind thoughts of everyone who has reached out from near and far including our Board Members and Emeritus Advisors.

We will continue to pursue our work, keeping our wider Boston community in our thoughts and appreciating all of those who are working to keep us safe.
