There's good news tonight. So often the good news doesn't get as much attention as the bad. So every Saturday, we highlight the many people who spread joy and love. And these are just some of those stories this week. When Mikaela Nolan finished her first Boston marathon this week, there was a big surprise. Her grandpa Bill was waiting. He'd come from Florida watching her run to honor his late wife, Anne, the grandma who'd always supported Mikaela's marathon dreams. I think she would have just said that she was so proud and so happy for me for achieving this goal. Three more. And talk about a victory lap, that's Texas high school track coach Joe McKinney.

There's a new chapter ahead, too, for Michigan Police Chief Scott Burns. I would like to recognize your devotion to this community and your dedication to this police Department. He broke down in tears during the traditional last call, his final day on the horse. It's so meaningful because the person talking was his wife, Lisa, a 911 dispatcher. They've been working together 24 years.
