PORTAGE (WKZO) – Hundreds gathered Tuesday in Portage to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Runners of all skill level rose together in solidarity to show their support to their fellow racers in Boston and all over the world.
Andrew Simmons, a competitive marathoner, said before the race, “Runners know how to endure.” That sentence was ever-present as the racers took off from Celery Flats on the half-mile course designed to symbolize the portion of the race not finished by many yesterday in Boston. Some stopped there while others kept on running.
From one community to another, the Run for Solidarity showed how we all endure together.
