Thousand-mile relay to bring donations to Boston Marathon victims

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 20:00
That distance is a jog around the block compared with what a group of Tennessee runners will undertake next month when they set off on a 1,075-mile relay to Boston, where they plan to deliver more than $50,000 in donations to charities that help victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The plan for 26 runners to run that distance in continuous, alternating 6-mile shifts was the brainchild of Matt Ryerson, head of the Cleveland, Tennessee, branch of the United Way charity. Accompanied by support vehicles, that will provide runners with a place to rest between relay legs and shuttle them to hotels and meals, the group plans to spend eight days on the road, passing through major cities including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York along the way before arriving in Boston on April 20, the day before this year's marathon. At the end of their road, they plan to present checks totaling at least $50,000 to Boston's One Step Ahead Foundation, which is helping children who lost limbs when the pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs went off at the finish line last year, as well as Dream Big, a Boston-based charity that provides equipment and funds that enable girls from low-income families to participate in sports.
