KALAMAZOO (WKZO) – Gazelle Sports in downtown Kalamazoo is joining hundreds of other running stores around the nation to hold a “Runners for Boston” event Monday, April 22. The event is a 3-mile run/walk beginning at Bronson Park at 6:30pm.
Participants to the event are encouraged to buy a t-shirt provided by Gazelle Sports to benefit The One Fund Boston formed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the terrorist attacks that occurred on April 15, 2013.
The “Runners for Boston” shirt retails at $20 and those wishing to purchase are encouraged to arrive early due to high demand and limited stock. All proceeds from the shirt sales will go directly to Boston charities. Only cash or check will be accepted as methods of payment.
