Local runners converge on Kent to help raise money for domestic violence survivors

KENT, Ohio - Dozens of runners braved the colder than normal temperatures in Kent Saturday morning. The runners were part of the On My Own Two Feet Marathon. Money raised benefits local survivors of domestic violence at local shelters.

Those who turned out were also there to remember and honor those runners killed and injured at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Runners wore the Boston Marathon colors of blue and yellow.  "I think it's awesome, people have been coming together," said runner Nikaeda Griffie.

Cory McCusker ran in the Boston Marathon on Monday. He said he crossed the finish line about 30 minutes before the bombs exploded. "I would not normally run two marathons in one week but I wanted to come out," said McCusker.
