Valley runners raise money for Boston victims

PHOENIX - Valley runners hit the streets Monday to raise money for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Brooke Voss ran the marathon but couldn't finish because of the chaos. Brooke is blind.

"Being here tonight and feeling the energy of everyone is fantastic," said Brooke.

Brooke was one of a few hundred runners who laced up to run the three mile course starting at The Runner's Den in Phoenix. The popular Valley store helped organize the run.

They raised money by selling raffle tickets and selling T-shirts designed to honor Martin Richard, the little boy who died in the bombings.

"Out of despair we can start to move forward," said Brooke.

This race was about more than money. It was to prove Americans always come together to finish the race.
