Fitness Friday: Run For Boston

As a human being each one of us has been affected to one point or another by the recent events that happened in Boston on April 15, 2013. If you are like me there is so much we want to do to help the injured and consul the families who lost a loved one. Because it isn’t so easy to jump in a car and help out in Boston, you can still get involved by participating in an upcoming community organized event to honor those in Boston. Here are a couple of ways you can help those in Boston:

Created by PavementRunner.com, you can organize or join in community run on April 22. Organize a run or find one already planned by clicking on the link.

If you would like to donate, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino have established the One Fund Boston, a fundraising effort intended to raise money for the families most impacted by Monday’s bombings. Beware of any non-official fundraising efforts for they may be scams. To donate to the One Fund Boston, visit onefundboston.org.

Adidas, the official retailer of the Boston Marathon, designed a “Boston Stands as One” t-shirt. The t-shirt is available at Adidas.com with 100 percent of the proceeds going to The One Fund Boston, Inc. in order to help the people most affected by the tragic events. The t-shirt costs $26.20 and is available on Adidas.com.

For those of you running in the Big Sur International Marathon, a group has been created to run along the 4:15 pace group to honor those who lost their lives on 4/15/13 at the Boston Marathon bombing. For further information please visit the https://www.facebook.com/events/317690801693411/#

  8. What happened in Boston was so surreal. I watched the winners come through and then logged off to get back to work. But I was glued like so many others. Glad you will get to run alongside the group for Big Sur. I am an ambassador for Black Girls RUN! Columbia (SC) and we did a group run to honor the victims of that horrific tragedy. We also did it on a national level as well.

    Here's to keeping running alive.
