Boston strong – Red Bud’s Nick Fehr ran in 2024 Boston Marathon

For many runners, it is a dream to run in the Boston Marathon, and for one young man from Red Bud, it became a reality last week.

It is said that only 0.01 percent of the United States population will run a marathon in any given year, so the percentage of those that run in Boston is much less.

Among the runners this year was Nick Fehr.

Fehr is a 2022 graduate of Red Bud High School and currently attends (and runs for) Kaskaskia College. He is the son of Ken and Julie Fehr, who accompanied him for the race.
