Boston Solidarity Run

After this week's tragic events in Boston, you may be wanting to help out in some way. Independent running stores across America are hosting a solidarity run as a way to show support for Boston.

Up and Running, a local independent store that specializes in fitness shoes and apparel, is organizing an area event. Everyone is invited to join Runners for Boston on Mon., April 22, at 6:30 p.m., at the track at Fairmont High School (3301 Shroyer Road in Kettering). Participants are encouraged to wear Boston gear or blue and yellow, which are the colors of the Boston Marathon logo.

There is no cost to participate in the 2.62 mile run/walk. Runners for Boston T-shirts will be sold for $20, and all proceeds will benefit One Fund Boston, as a way to help the people most affected by Monday's events.

Check it out at --

This is all the information that I have, and I assume that the Run will be around the Fairmont track. I'm posting this to foster participation for the cause, not for us to meet at a specific location or specific time as a "Meetup" event. I hope that you can participate in the run and donate to a good cause if possible.

    Yes I made it, but don't know the people of the group yet, and wasn't sure how to find you. It was a great event.

    Perfect weather! Up & Running sold all 300 t-shirts. There were @ least 200 more runners there. It was incredible to see the show of support for Bostonians! Amazingly, Karen found me at the gate and Rob found us after the 1st lap! Sorry we missed you, Brad and Cecillia! I hope you were able to make it and enjoy the event.
