A Baltimore police report confirmed that Keith Boissiere was attacked on Thursday in Southwest Baltimore. Police say he was running in the 2700 block of Wilkens Ave. in the Millhill neighborhood at about 3:30 p.m. when someone came up to him and punched him several times in the left eye. The attack left Boissiere with a small laceration, police said.
Boissiere was able to flag down a police officer for help, the report said. Police say he refused medical treatment. The police report listed no suspects.
Boissiere is recognized in many neighborhoods as the "Running Man" because he is often seen running from midday into the afternoon through many parts of the city and is known for his treks from Baltimore to D.C. several times over the years.
With a wide gray beard and long wavy gray hair, the 5-foot-9 Boissiere has been a familiar figure in Baltimore for decades. In 2006, the Trinidad and Tobago native told the Baltimore Sun that runs about 140 miles a week. He worked as a carpenter, at the time, and listed his weight at 127 pounds.
Please help Keith THE RUNNING MAN Boissiere, get an Under Armour contract. Who would be a better spokesperson for running gear than him? Also the running man is a Baltimore Icon who needs a kidney transplant.
The reason the Running Man is such an icon in this city is because he represents a sense of freedom and peace, among other things including keeping in tip top shape as we all should strive to do as human beings.
Mr. Boissiere has served as a beacon of inspiration among many of Baltimore's residents and he has done this quietly never seeking accolades. I strongly feel that it is time for him to be recognized. My only fear is that The Running Man's modesty will keep him from accepting.
So please sign this petition because if he does not get a kidney it will end his running days and probably his life. Therefore the citizens of Baltimore need to come together and show how much we care for an Icon who represents the best of our city.
