Marathoner’s death sparks surge in charity donations
LONDON — The death of a runner in the London Marathon has inspired a flood of donations to the charity she supported. Claire Squires, who ran to raise money for the Samaritans, which works to prevent suicide, collapsed Sunday near the end of the course. The cause of her death has not been determined.
Squires, 30, a hairdresser from North Kilworth, England, had climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with a friend last year to raise 1,500 pounds ($2,400) for the Royal Air Force Association. The Samaritans said donations will go into a tribute fund in Squires‘ name.
Senators’ Alfredsson apologizes for outburst
OTTAWA — Daniel Alfredsson said his outburst in Game 6 hurt the Ottawa Senators chances of eliminating the New York Rangers. “It was bad,” Alfredsson said Tuesday. “I’m definitely not proud of it, and I think it’s detrimental for the whole team.”
The captain’s return to the lineup after sitting out three games with a concussion was supposed to spark the Sens, but instead it became marked by an uncharacteristic outburst of emotion.
Alfredsson was held out of a power play early in the third period and took a hit from Rangers forward John Mitchell during his first shift back, prompting him to return to the bench and smash his stick over the boards.
