Zanis puts up crosses in Boston

Kane County Chronicle

SUGAR GROVE – Greg Zanis said he drove 2,000 miles in less than two days to put up three crosses at the bombing site in Boston where three people were killed this week.

Zanis, a Sugar Grove Township resident, has become known for placing crosses in crisis situations as a way of remembering those who have died. He often travels long distances to do so.

“We did the same thing we did at Newtown [Conn.], where we put up 26 crosses,” Zanis said.

Newtown was the site of a school shooting in December that left 26 people dead, including 20 children.
