Other marathons offer support for Boston victims
BOSTON -- Marathons in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland are joining together to raise money for the victims of last week's Boston Marathon bombing.
The three May events are providing wristbands that say "Boston Strong" to fans who make any donation to One Fund Boston. The charity was established to help those affected by the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line that killed three and wounded as many as 200 others.
Cleveland Marathon executive director Jack Staph says participants in his race were looking for a way to help.
All three of the races will hold a moment of silence for the Boston victims.
The Pittsburgh and Cincinnati races are May 5, and the Cleveland event is May 19.
