Jasper County native has close brush with Boston disaster
For Mackenzie Petermeier, the events surrounding the Boston Marathon were incomprehensible chaos.
The Mingo native and Baxter alumni travelled to Boston to run the marathon alongside her cousin, Jamison Voss. Voss attends Iowa State University with Petermeier, has worked alongside her at an internship in Seattle and also has run with her before in the Seattle Rock-n-Roll Marathon.
Voss also is legally blind, having been diagnosed with congenital dominant optic nerve atrophy, which is severe damage to the optic nerve that can adversely affect central, peripheral and color vision.
