Lu Lingzi Home

Thank you for visiting our page dedicated to honoring the life and memory of Lingzi Lu, who lost her life in the 2013 Boston marathon bombings.

Lingzi Foundation

The Lingzi Foundation is a 501 (c) (3), not-for-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts formed by the family of Lu Lingzi, who perished during the Boston Marathon bombing attack, to preserve and perpetuate Lingzi’s life example.

The Foundation provides opportunities to those who share Lingzi’s ambition and dreams to enrich their lives, open their minds, and break down barriers by learning from her positive spirit, unparalleled work ethic, perseverance, and humanism.

Lingzi lived life fully with joy by appreciating family and friends, food and its ability to bring people together, and the beauty of the environment around her. The Foundation seeks to identify and partner with organizations that share these passions and support their inspirational initiatives.
