A grassroots group invites everyone — runners, walkers, bikers, spectators — to a community run/walk this Saturday (April 20, 8 a.m.) at Compo Beach.
The event — organized by the Joggers Club — is a response to Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing.
Donations will be collected for the family of 8-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed after hugging his father at the finish line, and his 7-year-old sister Jane, who lost her leg; 27-year-old Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs as he waited for his girlfriend to finish, and the Boston Marathon team and first responders.
After a few words in memory of those killed and maimed in Boston, the run/walk will begin. The route loops around Green’s Farms Road.
Great Cakes is sponsoring the event.
