Fundraising run today to honor Boston bombing victims

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today will be a special run here in Tucson to remember the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, just one week after the tragedy.

The community is encouraged to come out and participate, to remind everyone the running community stands with the victims of the tragedy in Boston.

The message behind the run is ‘We are unstoppable'

The event is organized by Fleet Feet Tucson a locally owned running, walking, and fitness store.  Organizers say words can't possibly relay their sadness, heartache and anger in response to the Boston Marathon bombings, but the running community will not let the acts of few take away their passions. 

Registration is free, t-shirts are available for $20.  100 percent of the proceeds go to the One Fund, to help the victims of Boston. 

Registration will be from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., with the run starting at 6 p.m.  People can run or walk anywhere from one to five miles.  The run will start at 7301 E. Tanque Verde.
