A Massachusetts state police photographer who leaked dramatic photos of the bloodied Boston Marathon bombing suspect during his capture has retired, just days after he was disciplined for his actions.
CLEVELAND - In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon tragedy, race directors across the country saw an outpouring of compassion and support from runners who want to help and support Boston during their run in upcoming marathons.
Race directors from the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon have teamed up to provide an opportunity for their runners to show support for Boston.
Each race will purchase and make available at their event blue wristbands inscribed with "Boston Strong." Participants can "purchase" the bands for whatever amount they would like to give as a donation to One Fund Boston. All of the money will be sent directly to One Fund Boston at the conclusion of each race weekend.
"Many of our participants have been looking for ways to not only give money to support Boston, but also to wear something during their race to show their support for the victims and the city," said Jack Staph, Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon executive director. "This bracelet will allow them to do both, and we're glad to work with Cincinnati and Pittsburgh on this fundraiser."
All of the races will hold a moment of silence at the starting line on race day.
The Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon will be held on May 19.
