Bethel College to host Boston bombing fundraiser


Bethel College will host a fundraiser to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombing on Tuesday. The Walk for Boston starts at 5:00pm on Tuesday at the Bethel College outdoor track and will end Wednesday with a closing ceremony at noon.
Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to participate by making a $10 donation and walking or running around the track for any amount of time.
The college says the idea came about when track team members Betty Graber and Marissa Watts  approached Track Coach Tony Natali. "They felt moved by what had happened in Boston and wanted to help in some way," said Natali.

After doing some brainstorming with a group of students, they decided to have a fundraiser similar to a Relay for Life event.
