Local students walk to remember Boston Marathon Bombing Victims


Local students are still doing their part to keep the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings in their thoughts.

Students at Bethel College are holding a Walk for Boston at the outdoor track tonight that will continue into tomorrow afternoon.

The students are hoping to donate the money they raise at the walk to the New England Patriots charity, who will match their donation and disperse it throughout other charities in Boston.

Bethel College track member Betty Martinez-Graber says, "The main goals is to probably just have as much support as we can have. I mean it's out of our hands, its up to the community entirely and we just hope people can come and just support Boston."

The walk will end tomorrow with a closing ceremony at noon.

Another local school that was walking for Boston tonight-- Penn High School.

After school let out, students were invited to walk a mile to remember the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings.

During classes today, students also held a Miracle Minute, gathering as many donations as possible in 60 seconds.

Penn H.S. Junior Kylie Bruteman says "I just wanted to figure out what can I do, and what can our school do to give them a little bit of help, let them know that there are people out there who do want to help and are keeping them in their thoughts "

Penn High School students raised over 500 dollars to donate to the Red Cross Relief Fund in Boston.
