Tom Brady knows a superstar when he sees one. And he remembers her.
On Monday, Brady shared a 2014 photo with Adrianne Haslet-Davis, one of the 17 people who lost a limb in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. On Monday, Haslet-Davis is running the Boston Marathon with a prosthetic leg.
Haslet-Davis was watching friends near the finish line three years ago when one of the two bombs exploded. Despite losing a leg in the attack, Haslet-Davis has returned to the finish line in the the two years since.
She accompanied her two brothers in 2014 at the finish when they ran the race. In 2015, Haslet-Davis, a ballroom dancer (even since her amputation), danced across the end line.
Today, she runs in support of Limbs for Life. On Patriots' Day, Brady is happy to sidestep the spotlight for folks like Adrianne Haslet-Davis.
