A grieving mother’s marathon

Gina Young, of Viola, Ill., trains for the Quad Cities Marathon’s half-marathon in the cemetery where her son, John-Michael Perry, is buried.

The 20-year-old died Aug. 3, 2016, after falling out of a moving car while leaving the Mississippi Valley Fair in Davenport with friends. The grieving mother says she is running the race to honor her late son and help heal her pain.
