One Fund for Boston

Our heart belongs to Boston…
TheOneFundBostonIf you participated in the Boston Marathon this year, or were out cheering the marathoners on, we hope that you and yours are safe.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the three young people who we lost on Monday, and to those who were injured. We’re extremely proud of Boston’s brave first responders and world class medical personnel, as well as those in the crowd who, without thinking of their own safety, selflessly helped others in need.

While we’re still in deep shock and in mourning here in Boston, we are resilient and are looking forward to supporting and cheering next year’s runners on.

In support of those directly impacted by the tragic events, Mayor Thomas Menino and Governor Deval Patrick have created a new charity called The One Fund  with the purpose of raising money to help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during Monday’s Boston Marathon.

If you are looking for a way to help those directly impacted or to make a contribution to anyone in need you can:

The Boston Marathon is one of the world’s premier international athletic events. Thousands of runners and spectators come from around the world each year to participate and watch the race. The marathon is also a truly democratic event, one in which elite and regular runners alike can participate, and one that everyone along the course can pull up a lawn chair and enjoy (no tickets needed). While we’ll never forget what happened on April 15th, that original joyous and competitive spirit of the Boston Marathon must and will endure.

Thank you so much.
